The Creative Industries Council is a joint forum between the creative industries and government.
Role of the group
Set up to be a voice for creative industries, the council focus on areas where there are barriers to growth facing the sector, such as access to finance, skills, export markets, regulation, intellectual property (IP) and infrastructure. Action will be taken forward in these areas through the work of a small number of ‘task and finish’ working groups.
Council members are leading figureheads drawn from across the creative and digital industries including TV, computer games, fashion, music, arts, publishing and film.
The council is co-chaired by The Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, The Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Tim Davie CBE, Chief Executive at BBC Studios.
