Small and medium-sized businesses that deals in the UK’s creative economy are at present worth £53.4 billion. But these companies’ legacy is at risk because of a possible failure to inspire the coming generation of creative entrepreneurs.
According to a report done by Arts and Business, it warns that the creative sector is facing a grave future because of the oppressive way schools are pressuring students and the way they stunt creativity just when it peaks.
It also cited the current culture that promotes conformity that is made worse by the pressure from adults to secure well-paid, stable, non-creative jobs. The report said that these attitudes inhibit the creativity ability of students in exchange for a career in business, most specifically as an entrepreneur.
The report cited evidence that shows children have a large creative potential at five years old but this mostly goes away by the time of their twelfth birthday.
Even though it also shows that creativity is revived when these children reach early adulthood, it is negatively affected yet again by anxieties over office culture, the prospect of failure and the pressures of the real world.
Company formation and business solutions experts are backing the suggestion of Arts and Business that would compel decision makers in both schools and offices to promote a more radical way of thinking as well as creative intervention in order to protect the children who are considered to be the future of Britain’s economic success and a source for innovation in the years to come.
