Summary Report - CCI Mapping - A Baseline This Baseline Report encapsulates the main findings of a series of five (5) reports that have been prepared in response to a specific request 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 the South African Cultural and Creative Industry (CCI). The research study is related to section 5.5 of the NRA, which proposes an economic mapping study of the CCIs in South Africa. The scope of work and deliverables for the study are presented in five separate reports. Table 1 below provides the broad details of the reports within which each research topic is addressed. The key findings of the mapping study are presented in this report that condenses each of the selected reports, identifies key research findings, and attempts to draw broad implications for South African policy-makers in order to support the growth and development of South Africa’s creative economy
