The Center for Creative Industries in the Macau Special Administrative Region is a project developed and managed by the Institute of European Studies of Macau. Its main role is to assist the creative industries by raising their profile and helping them achieved their full economic potential.
Creative industries rely on individual achievements but its recognition belongs to society. It is a process of sharing and communicating. It is a process of adding value to something which otherwise would be insignificant.
For the first stage of the project we have defined 12 areas of creative industries to be supported. It does not mean other areas cannot or will not be subject to our attention. It is just the beginning of what we hope will be a long and successful journey. The 12 creative areas include:
ADVERTISING, ARCHITECTURE, CRAFTS, DESIGN, DESIGNER FASHION, FILM AND VIDEO, INTERACTIVE LEISURE SOFTWARE, MUSIC, PERFORMING ARTS, PUBLISHING, SOFTWARE AND COMPUTER DEVELOPMENT, VISUAL ARTS.
