A successful project consists of seven main steps.
Step 1. Consider why you’re doing the mapping? It helps to understand the place of creative industries in the whole economic process.
Step 3. Find the definition of creative industries. Mainly, the toolkit successfully deals with this. Definitions will help you to clarify the scope of work.
Step 4. Who does the work? This question means that not only cultural activists work on mapping but also the project needs to have financial support.
Step 5. Select the research approach. It will depend on the particular situation. In addition, the toolkit suggests six blocks to build the methodology.
Step 6. Create the main message to communicate with the audience and policy. The project will develop only with awareness, debates, and communication around it.
Step 7. How to keep the project going on? The toolkit advises to take a long-term view and keep collecting information so as not leave the project as a “one-off”.
