Community Wealth Building and the Creative Industries

Community Enterprise and Creative Scotland are working in partnership to create a piece of research focusing on Community Wealth Building and the Creative Industries.

Community Wealth Building (CWB) is a new people-centred approach to local economic development, which redirects wealth back into the local economy, and places control and benefits into the hands of local people.

The aim of this research is to support Scotland’s creative industries in developing a clearer understanding of the principles, opportunities and goals of Community Wealth Building and to identify models of practice and exemplars that will support the creative and cultural sector in engaging with this policy imperative.

The following objectives underpin this research:

  1. Explore the role creative industries have in the CWB agenda including key enablers and barriers.
  2. Clearly set out the opportunities the CWB agenda creates for creative and cultural organisations.
  3. Deliver a locally designed place-based intervention within three local authority areas that supports creative and cultural organisations to learn about and progress their work in relation to CWB.

This survey will ultimately help Creative Scotland facilitate greater opportunities for creative industries within the CWB agenda so if you want to ensure that arts and culture in the health and wellbeing areas are represented then have your say and take part in the survey –
