Since the late 1990s, cultural and creative sectors and industries have received increasing attention from scholars, practitioners and politicians as driving forces in the 21st-century economies. These sectors and industries are seen as sources for economic growth (Pine and Gilmore, 1999; Caves, 2000; Throsby, 2001) urban development (Jakob, 2013), branding for cities or local territories (Ooi and Strandgaard Pedersen, 2010, 2017; Scott, 2010), drivers for creativity (Lampel, Lant and Shamsie, 2000; Jones, Svejenova, Strandgaard Pedersen and Townley, 2016), as well as sources for social cohesion and solidarity (Higgs, Cunningham and Bakhshi, 2008).
