The Creative Industries Federation is the national organisation for the UK’s creative industries, cultural education and arts, providing an authoritative voice in a way never done before.
The creative industries are the fastest growing sector of the UK economy spanning advertising and architecture to video games, performance to publishing, and all the creative disciplines recognised in official statistics - as well as associated areas such as heritage. They are worth £87.4bn GVA. The creative sector also has huge intrinsic and social value.
We are entirely independent. Our revenues - and our strength - come from more than 1,000 companies, organisations, institutions and individual practitioners, working in every part of the creative industries - commercial and publicly-supported - as well as in the education system that supports them all. We work with our members in towns, cities and the rural economy, nationwide.
We work with politicians of all parties and across all of government and with every level of government - from eight Whitehall departments including No 10 and the Treasury, the devolved nations, metro mayors, city leaders, LEPs and local authorities.
The challenges posed by Brexit and the opportunities presented by the industrial strategy have made it more important than ever that we articulate the value of our sector - intrinsic, economic, societal and in terms of soft power. If ever there was a need for the Federation, it is now.
