 Cultural matters are integral parts of the lives we lead. If development can be seen as enhancement of our living standards, then efforts geared to development can hardly ignore the world of culture.”Amartya Sen

The Art of Development: Investing in the Creative Economy, Pacific Institute of Public Policy

Key messages:

» Developing and maintaining a vibrant arts and culture policy is central to nation building - Pacific governments and development partners could start by prioritising arts and culture.

 

» There are risks associated with a rush to commercialise. Appropriate commercialisation can assist with both preserving and developing culturally inspired creative pursuits.

 

» Policy and practice need to protect rights associated with ownership of cultural knowledge, particularly with  respect to asserting authenticity.

 

» More and better information is required on both the supply and demand sides to know what the economic realities are of the creative sector.

 

» There are opportunities to expand economic activity through tourism and providing opportunities to exhibit and market creative works in metropolitan markets. The internet has a role to play, but is no silver bullet.
