Who are we

What we do

Through the publication of several economic studies, France Créative has underscored the important role the cultural and creative economy plays on the national and European stage. The success of this initiative, which has been taken up at European and global level, along with the need to create a common platform to influence the national debate, led the members of France Créative to form a non-profit association in order to become a key player in the world of culture and creativity – and in the cultural and creative industries.
