The Future of the Cultural and Creative Industries in the United Arab Emirates
TFCC was commissioned by The British Council UAE and the Ministry of Youth and Culture UAE to lead a major new research programme for the country. We added to our core team a cohort of local experts working in creative education and skills, creative enterprise and digital transformation to undertake three interconnected pieces of research:
- Future foresighting of the cultural and creative industries/creative economy in the UAE
- Skills required to develop talent for future jobs in the cultural and creative industries in UAE
- Educational gaps in UAE higher education to fulfil the required skills.
Our work also identified opportunities for UAE / UK collaboration across the cultural and creative industries.
