This report represents a macro-economic mapping study of South Africa’s cultural and creative industry (CCI) and broader creative economy. This initial section encapsulates the key research findings and policy implications of a series of five reports that were recently requested from the Department of Arts and Culture (DAC) and the South African Cultural Observatory (SACO) to support the development of a National Research Agenda (NRA) of South Africa’s CCIs and creative economy. Critically, the mapping study is related to section 5.5 of the NRA, which, among other things, proposes, a “mapping study of South African Cultural and Creative Industries”.1 Table 1 below provides the broad details of the five reports within which specific research topics are addressed by the contributing authors.
