Department of State Development

The Creative Industries cluster of screen, music and craft drives collaboration to transform creativity into commercial outcomes.

Creativity and innovation are driving South Australia’s future. The State Government’s Creative Industries cluster works to boost the capacity, value, efficacy and scale of the screen, music and craft sectors - and as a result - the economic benefits to the state.

Embedding our creative culture into our new economic landscape is critical to retaining a skilled and dynamic population and building opportunities for local creatives.

We are currently developing Industry Capability Statements for each sector, including mapping and economic analysis.  These will inform strategies for industry development, international investment and pathways to employment.
