Definition provided by the Czech Ministry of Culture (2014)
“Cultural and creative sectors (CCSs) include activities which are based on human creativity, skill
and talent. CCSs are based on cultural values, and artistic and creative expression. They have
the potential to create wealth and jobs, in particular by using intellectual property.
They includeactivities (services, works, performances, and products) that are of a public, non-profit, and market
nature, regardless of the type and method of financing used by the entity that carries them out.
The outputs of the CCSs’ activities contribute with their added value to other economic sectors
and can be a source of technological and non-technological innovation (creative and digital economy).
CCSs have many other positive impacts on society and the specific individual.
CCSs include architecture, design, advertising, film and audio-vision, music, books and publishing,
digital games, software, new media and related IT services, radio and television broadcasting,
performing arts, visual arts, crafts, gastronomy, and cultural heritage.”
