The creative industries – which include everything from steelpan to fashion design – will undergo a major data collection drive.

The culture mapping project is a UNESCO-funded initiative and will see information gathered to assess the sector’s economic impact in Antigua and Barbuda. The aim is to highlight the contribution creative industries make to national development, identify ways to increase participation in them, and lobby for more funding, among other things.
