A Silent Revolution - The cultural and creative industries (CCIs) are one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. In the UK they are now the fastest-growing sector and more significant than financial services, generating quality jobs faster than any other sector. In Sri Lanka too the creative economies have seen a silent and steady growth. Our baseline research study and report Creative and Cultural Industries in Sri Lanka revealed that Sri Lanka’s creative economy had raised its GDP contribution from 433.62 million dollars to 845.41 million dollars, showing a growth of 95 per cent, within 4 years.
The objective of our creative economy development programme is to increase awareness, and facilitate the recognition of the creative and cultural industries amongst creative networks, industry stakeholders and policy makers.
