Creative Industries Survey and Product Development Project

The Creative Industries Survey and Product Development Project will work at both building relationships, trust and communication within the creative industries sector at the same time as gathering data to inform creative industries product development.

The project will deliver the following:

  1. A map and database of existing individual creatives, creative industries and creative tourism product
  2. A connected and communicating creative industries network invested in working together
  3. The identification of a series of creative tourism products that local creatives are willing to contribute to and participate in.
  4. An implementation plan to guide the capacity and capability building of the creative industries through the provision of professional advice, development and support e.g. training, mentoring, access to funding.

Why we need the survey?  

The ‘Creative Industries Survey’ is our first project because it makes sense that we start by finding out who is out there, what support creatives feel they need to ‘achieve positive results’ and look at ways to develop creative tourism products that serve our creative community and visitors to our region.

Who does it?

The survey will cover the whole of the Tweed Shire. It will include creative individuals, groups and organisations. It will include artists, educators, event organisers, and project managers. It will cover all creative mediums including (but not exclusive to) animation, architecture, ceramics, craft, dance, design, fashion, film, graphic art, jewellery, music, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture, theatre and woodwork.

The more people that participate in the audit, the better the outcome will be and then together we can create a dynamic and prosperous creative industry for the Tweed Shire.
