African Journal of Creative Economy (Journal)

Activity: Publication peer-review and editorial workPublication Peer-review


The journal’s focus is on researching and discussing theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the cultural and creative economy in Africa. Research from outside Africa will also be considered as long as it is relevant to the African creative economy in terms of policy lessons or comparative analysis. The journal is primarily aimed at those researching, studying, and developing policies and practising activities that have their origin in individual creativity, skill and talent, and which have the potential to contribute to employment, economic development and wealth creation. Rather than simply applying theories and models of the creative economy developed mostly in the Global North, the journal aims to publish research based on learnings from the African and Global South context, problematising commonly held (western) understandings of concepts like heritage, sustainability, and precarious employment.
