Forum on Creative Industries (UK)  Popular
Description: FOCI is a network of experienced professionals concerned to inform and influence the current debates around the creative industries - now given momentum by the high profile accorded the sector by the government. FOCI brings together a wide body of experience around local and regional policy; economic and social development; urban regeneration; academic research; cultural strategy; education and training; and industry-based initiatives - accumulated over the last 15 years of Creative Industry policy making.FOCI welcomes recent Government initiatives - talking to industry representatives and promoting the contribution of the sector to the economy, quality of life and the image of Britain abroad. We feel that a 'window of opportunity' has been opened by the new government for a policy dialogue with those involved in the creative industries. However, we also feel that the current emphasis on high profile industry figures, on the glamourous success stories, and the large scale national bodies runs the risk of ignoring the dynamic roots, the sources of energy that fuel the sector and the complex ecosystem in which they thrive.
