ICCE delivers entrepreneurship, cultural management and policy education to the creative and cultural sectors, and supports research into new approaches to business, financial models and management in the Creative Economy.
It delivers a range of academic programmes and presents activities and events to promote an environment in which creative and cultural entrepreneurship can flourish. Our approach is to integrate entrepreneurship within the development of creative practices, and to take a creative approach to the development of new businesses and the infrastructure that supports them.
ICCE is Goldsmiths’ response to the growing significance of the creative industries and cultural sector in the UK’s economy. Figures have shown that the creative industries account for 9% of the UK’s GDP and a rising part of its export trade and total employment. Business skills, management skills and entrepreneurial skills with a specific understanding of the sector are needed to support its continued growth.
