Understanding Britain’s Creative Economy In Arts And Culture

Originally, the term creative economy originated from “Creative Britain”, the political slogan of the British Labor Party. One of the policy agendas of the Labor Party government in 1997, the British government at that time created a government agency such as the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to foster the ‘Creative Industry’ in earnest. Terminology. The Blair regime continued to develop Thatcher’s neoliberal policy and continue to develop high-tech, high value-added industries rather than labor-intensive manufacturing industries.

London’s Creative Industries

British government’s creative economy policy

The UK’s Department of Culture and Media (DCMS, Dept for Culture, Media and Sports) uses the creative culture industry as’ individual creative talent and technology to create intellectual property rights, based on which it creates value and employment and economic growth. It is defined as the ‘towing industry’.

The ‘Creative Culture Industry Classification Report’ prepared by DCMS sets the domain of the creative industry as covering the entire cultural industry, and specifically, films, music, performances, advertisements, architecture, art, leisure, publishing, broadcasting, radio, etc. It is expanding to the field of.

Global Mecca For The Creative Culture

Thanks to the policies of the British government, the UK has emerged as a global mecca for the creative culture and content industry. In particular, the export volume of movies and popular music has grown to be the second-largest in the world after the United States, and the Premier League has become the world’s best professional soccer league and has gained the competitiveness of the sports industry.

In the field of design, animation, and games, it has first-class competitiveness. Among them, the Harry Potter series has caught the attention of people around the world in the publishing and movie markets, and has established itself as a symbol of ‘Creative Britain’. The British creative industry showed an average annual growth rate of 6.9% over the period of the Blair regime’s power in 1997-2006, which is more than twice the average annual economic growth rate in the U.K.

Moving to London is a great opportunity to witness what the U.K. has to offer in terms of arts and culture. We are all familiar with Harry Potter but there is more to it than movies. Take the opportunity to view great visual arts content in the film and video sectors, the performing arts, and the music sector.

Will the Culturally Historic Binna Burra Lodge Rise Again?

The catastrophic Australian fire that is currently engulfing swathes of regions around the country had started out in September 2019. as a bushfire that decimated the culturally historic Binna Burra Lodge. The fire was swift, barely giving time to evacuate about a hundred guests staying at the heritage-listed lodge at the time the fire started.

Binna Burra Lodge Chairman, Steve Noakes said the experience of seeing the damage the bushfire made to the complex was fairly traumatic.The devastation was extensive and far worse than what Mr. Noakes had imagined. It practically took his breath away when he first saw the extent of the damage. Mr Noakes reported

“The places where people had gathered through generations, the dining area, the library, the lounge, and even parts of the newly built Skylodge buildings, are gone.”

 

Binna Burra Lodge a Significant Part of Australian Heritage

Since Binna Burra opened in 1933, the environmental lodge had provided temporary home to hundreds of thousands of ordinary people coming from different parts of the world, when they set to explore and experience the grandeur of the world-heritage rainforest site known as Lamington National Park.

Started 86 years ago by prominent Australian conservationist, journalist, photographer and adventurer Arthur Groom with fellow conservationist and national parks advocate and engineer Romeo Lahey, Binna Burra never took on the air of plush and luxury.

The quaint wood-slab cabins, and the reception lounge with its big fireplace were all built with ordinary folks in mind. Binna Burra gave access to the national forest with only one road in coming from the Gold Coast; from the ridge of Beechmont to a final climb through a single-lane through the eucalyptus forest going to the edge of the rainforest.

Spanning 86 years, the Binna Burra Lodge had served as a beacon to bushwalkers, camping out school children and tired business executives looking for moments of quiet respite.

Binna Burra is gone and its future remains uncertain at the moment, because restoring the site to its original condition has to take a lot of things into consideration. Mr. Noakes acknowledges that there are now different dynamics affecting the way land is managed today, when compared to how it was 86 years ago.

Professor Catherine Pickering from the Griffith University – School of Environment and Science at Griffith University, said that if rebuilding of the complex is to be tackled, the structures must be designed in a way that factor in changes in climate conditions. As it is, changing patterns of dryness and rainfalls have been expanding, which is also driving changes in the way humans must interact with the land and its ecosystems.

Still, the Binna Burra website carries on with hope for the rapid rebuilding and rehabilitation of Binna Burra Lodge with the help of the taskforce created by the Queensland State Government.
