Creative industry: A contradiction in the terms
We were fortunate enough to be given a talk by guest lecturer Andrew Calcutt. The Talk he gave us Started of showing us how we as people have not changed in some aspects referring to how we still spectate people comparing 2011 to 1711 with the use of the blog the sartorialist (http://www.thesartorialist.com/) and the newspaper the Spectator he then went on to show us many other similarities with 2011 and 1711. He then spoke about Britain having a void as we are no longer an empire and that we are still looking for something to fill the void. I found the speak very thought provoking it has made me wonder can the creative industry possibly fill the void that the lack of an empire fill or will Britain ever revive its industrial heritage and if so what impact will that have on life and what impact will it have if they continue to outsource.
