    Creative industries ...

    ... make a significant economic contribution – their ideas and potentials for innovation are catalyst and motor for the future of our economy. The creative industries deal both with current social debates and with future issues; at the same time, creative businesses are experiencing enormous structural changes to their economic framework. Digital change is revolutionising markets, new trends and technologies on the one hand demand changes, but on the other create new opportunities that raise pressing questions: how can we ensure or develop the successes of creative industries? How do creative industries deal with the consequences of digitisation? What do they need to be fit for the future? Which potentials for innovation can be ground-breaking here and lead to spillover effects on other economic sectors as well? The Ministry for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitisation and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia has just published a pioneering study on this by Prognos, which quantifies for the first time various prognoses for digitisation scenarios: according to the study, the number of employed persons in creative industries in North Rhine-Westphalia could increase from 2015 to 2020 by 24% in the best case scenario. All these questions, and fundamental issues as well, such as how to deal with the area of tension between economy and creativity, require an interdisciplinary discourse, a platform. This is why the future of creative industries, with all their complexity, their potentials and challenges, was the focus of the 5th Creative Industries Dialogue on 11 January 2018 at the Dortmunder U.
