We partner British and Spanish artists and organisations to share business-models, best practice and new working methodologies. We also work with policy-makers and governmental organisations to share solutions to global challenges.
Our work focuses on three areas, Creative Entrepreneurship, Cultural Leadership, and Policy Development:
Creative entrepreneurs bridge the gap between artists and audiences. We work with book publishers, music promoters, film producers and interactive games developers to name but a few.
In a changing marketplace creative entrepreneurs play a vital role in developing innovative business models. They help us rethink production and distribution, highlighting the economic, cultural and often social benefits in doing so.
What is the role of culture in our complex and changing societies? Can culture play a role in wider social issues such as foreign policy, international relations or economic regeneration?
The British Council seeks to work with the new generation of cultural leaders. Working with key stakeholders around the world, we develop strategies to tackle global cultural issues.
Effective policy-making is essential for the development of a sustainable and competitive creative economy.
Building dialogue at local, regional and international levels will develop a more sustainable and relevant policies. Government interventions such as IP regulations, tax regimes and education policies shape creative economies. It important that we work with these institutions to promote initiatives and perspectives on how to develop the creative economy.
