What is Creative Enterprise
Creative enterprise refers to businesses/organisations that use artistic or creative skills, processes, or outputs to generate economic value. These enterprises can be found in sectors such as fashion, film, design, music, crafts, and media. They often prioritise innovation, creativity, and social impact in their goals and operations.
Creative enterprise is an important vision of Sysy House of Fame because it leverages the power of art and culture to address social and economic challenges in ways that traditional development approaches may not. By promoting creative enterprise Sysy House of Fame will be
– Engaging and empowering communities by tapping into their cultural and creative assets
– Providing opportunities for marginalised groups (such as artists, artisans, and craftsmen) to showcase their skills and generate income
– Encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship that can be sustainable and inclusive
– Supporting the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage
