Creativity, Culture & Capital Collection of Essays, Articles and Write-ups

Deadline: November 1st, 2021

Creativity, Culture & Capital is a platform for practitioners, industry experts and entrepreneurs rather than a scholarly journal for academics. The preferred approach is to share examples and stories of lived experience, as opposed to opinions and musings. In particular, they are seeking essays on the following topics:

  • Impact investors making the creative economy a strategic priority.
  • Impact investment funds targeting the creative economy.
  • Impact business incubators/accelerators targeting the creative economy.
  • Impact entrepreneurs and social enterprises in the creative economy.
  • The role of government at the intersection of creativity, entrepreneurship and impact.  
  • The creative economy as a source of quality jobs and inclusive wealth-building.
  • Barriers limiting impact investment in the creative economy.
  • How the creative economy can help advance the impact economy.


To complement the 75 essays published in 2021, Creativity, Culture & Capital invites additional essay contributions aligned with their themes of “Creativity at work”, offering examples of how art, design, culture, heritage and creativity are benefiting people, communities and the planet; and “Connecting impact capital, which illustrates how impact investment is already transforming and stimulating creative economic activity delivering financial returns as well as social and environmental impact.

With a goal of publishing a total of 100 essays by 2022, we particularly encourage perspectives from Africa, Asia and the Middle East; examples from the cultural heritage, fashion, food and music sectors; and voices of leaders from marginalised communities and the next generation.
