•How do we measure the value of arts and culture?
•Must these sectors and their activities make a profit to be considered valuable?
•What are the ramifications (cultural, social, political & economic) if the answer is ‘yes’?
(ie what impact does this have on what forms of culture are produced and consumed and seen to be ‘valuable’, and by whom?)
•How is ‘culture’ being used to justify/further other policy agendas?
•How have the terms ‘cultural industries’ and ‘creative industries’ been used in policy (and in the academy)?
•What forms of culture come to be promoted over others when value is measured in primarily economic terms?
