The creative industries in London contributed £13 billion in taxes in 2019/20, which could grow with further investment. Government support has been directed away from London, to the detriment of the UK and London, both culturally and economically.
Universities can be central players in the local ecosystems that drive the success of creative clusters
The creative industries are growing faster in London than elsewhere, both in terms of jobs and output.
Recent work and priorities:
- London Higher’s CreativeLDN website, designed for students at pre-university, university and post-university level who are looking to get into the creative industries
- Keeping London a creative leader – the role of London’s art and design institutions in the city’s creative and cultural ecosystem
