What was this engagement about?
Working together, the departments of Tourism and Culture, Economic Development, and Education are developing the Creative and Cultural Industries Strategy. Our goal is to develop a multi-year, action-focused strategy, that will guide government’s future programs and supports to advance the creative and cultural industries sector.
To ensure the strategy will be effective and relevant, we are engaging with individuals and organizations who work in the creative and cultural industries on a number of occasions. We would like to gather input and feedback to help us develop a strategy to support, strengthen and sustain a vibrant creative and cultural industries sector in Yukon.
The strategy will also actively consider diversity and inclusivity to ensure that barriers to entering and participating successfully in these industries are identified and addressed.
A working definition of creative and cultural industries is helpful in understanding the scope of this project. Although they are quite diverse, they are essentially all of those industries which generate cultural, artistic or heritage products and content for consumers and marketplaces. This includes writing and publishing, sound recording, visual and applied arts, crafting, film and interactive media, photography, live performance, heritage and libraries. It also includes the labour force and institutions required to support them.
How will my input make a difference?
Input from those involved in the sector is essential in ensuring we create a plan that guides our future programs and supports to advance the industries and the economy.
We want to hear feedback on the existing supports available and gather input on priorities, challenges and opportunities to ultimately determine goals and outcomes for the strategy.
