It is increasingly clear, that authentic expressions of creativity– both traditional and innovative – need more than nurturing talent to exist.

Large-scale cultural enterprises are few and far between, and a large number of microenterprises operate alongside SMEs, often occupying the lower ends of the value chain and fail to attain economic viability.
