Where are the opportunities for culture and creative industries in a constantly changing economic environment?
We’ve invited three renowned economists David Throsby, John O’Hagan and George Lee to shed new light on this question and propose compelling alternatives…
David Throsby is professor of economics at Macquarrie University, Sydney, and is one of a rare breed – a leading expert in the field of cultural economics. He co-authored the 2010 Culture and Innovation Report for NESTA where he showed how cultural organisations can use new technologies and innovative business models to communicate with audiences on an entirely new level.
John O’Hagan is professor of economics at Trinity College, Dublin, and one of the leading specialists on the economics of the arts and culture. He is a committed advocate for the need to find new methods for measuring the value and contribution made by the arts outside the traditional impact study.
George Lee (Chair)
George Lee is a renowned broadcaster and economist, and former economics editor with RTE. Through his successful radio and television series, The Business, George is a champion for indigenous small businesses that embrace innovation, creativity and new ideas.
Mark Nagurski is a Derry-based entrepreneur whose work with Digital Derry and iDDICTIVE focuses on promoting innovation and creative thinking in business. He is Digital Champion for the city of Derry, leading a collaborative cross-sectoral team focusing on supporting and promoting the development of the digital sector in Derry and the North-west.
