Building a Creative Nation: Evidence Review

This paper sets out the current context of youth unemployment and the social mobility crisis currently faced by the UK, before looking at the potential of the creative industries in helping to alleviate some of these issues, along with an examination of some policy areas which might better serve job creation in this area.

The evidence review sets out the obstacles facing young people from all walks of life from participating in the creative industries, including the relative preference of creative businesses to recruit unpaid workers, from a very small network of in-the-know applicants. It also sets out a clear case for the creative industries' capacity and capability to support not just jobs, but the kind of work that is fair, accessible and rewarding for all young people.
