UK National Centre for Craft and Design

"The National Centre for Craft & Design sits at the heart of the market town of Sleaford in Lincolnshire in the beautiful riverside setting of Navigation Wharf. It is the largest venue in England entirely dedicated to the exhibition, celebration and promotion of contemporary and international craft and design.

We do not have a permanent collection, providing instead a seasonal programme of dynamic exhibitions ranging from international to innovative new work created by local and regional artists shown across our four diverse gallery spaces."

Art and Culture Destination

"The aim of Culture.Info is to be the first port–of–call for users seeking cultural information on a particular topic. Each Culture.Info sub–portal will provide a carefully researched set of listings of links to information that is more focused and useful than can usually be obtained from the vast majority of existing listings or search engines.

Cultural areas will be added in due course in the following key areas:

* Heritage–including archaeology, archives, conservation, history, heritage, museums

* Media–including advertising, broadcasting, digital & new media, film, games, publishing, radio, television

* Performing–including circus, comedy, dance, festivals, music, opera, puppetry, theatre

* Pursuits–including antiques & collecting, hobbies & pastimes, outdoor activities

* Sport–individual and team, and also sports involving animals

* Visual–including architecture, crafts, design, exhibitions, galleries, painting, photography, sculpture

* Words–including books & literature, languages, libraries, reading, writing

* A place could be a country, a region or even a city."

Simon Roodhouse gauges the [UK] government's creative industries IQ Magazine : Spring 2008

"Stimulated by the 'New Labour' government in the 1990s, the economic role and function of the UK's creative industries aroused international interest. Chris Smith, Britain's New Labour Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, confirmed early in his ministry that the creative industries were a growth sector of the UK economy, saying 'It is incumbent on the government, in partnership with industry, to take active steps to promote economic growth in the creative and cultural sector. If we do not do so, then others will reap stressing efficiency, effectiveness, value for money, and market forces. Smith reinforces this interpretation: 'ensuring that the full economic and employment impact of the whole range of creative industries is acknowledged and assisted by government'. (Smith 1998)

The DCMS's interest and engagement with the creative industries, through the establishment of the Creative Industries Task Force (CITF), chaired by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, cannot be seen as anything other than a direct engagement by the generation and exploitation of intellectual property'. (Creative Industries Task Force 1998)

The sectors identified within this framework are: 'advertising, architecture, the art and antiques market, crafts, design, designer fashion, film, interactive leisure software, music, the performing arts, publishing, software, television and radio'. (Creative Industries Task Force 1998)"
