2021 is the United Nations International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. Acknowledging the importance of the creative sector, the framers of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals included creativity and culture alongside economics and technology when charting the path forward for global development. Creativity and culture are recognised as contributing to dialogue and understanding between peoples, as empowering people to take ownership of their own development, and as the basis for innovation that can drive inclusive and sustainable growth. The Covid-19 pandemic puts joint efforts by governments, civil society, private sector and international organisations in a new dimension, highlighting the importance of the creative economy as part of a global recovery.
