The Creative Industries Council
The Creative Industries Council (CIC) is a forum of government, creative businesses and other creative organisations.
It focuses on areas where there are barriers to growth of UK creative sectors such as access to finance, skills, export markets, regulation, intellectual property (IP) and infrastructure, and on promoting opportunities such as the CreaTech category and greater diversity and inclusion.
Action is taken forward by means of a small number of working groups and initiatives. In 2018, the CIC also set up the Creative Industries Trade & Investment Board (CITIB) to spearhead efforts on exports and inward investment.
