The investigation will look into the economic potential of the creative industries in Northern Ireland, with 31,000 people already employed within these industries.

The report will aim to highlight gaps in currrent policies and strategies and examine whether there is effective collaboration across government, businesses and other partners. It will also examine the key challenges facing the creative industries in Northern Ireland.

Recognition for the value of the creative and cultural industries in Northern Ireland is becoming more apparent, and this inquiry may form an important part of future policy plans for the country.

The inquiry is open for response before the 20th of December 2011.
