This consultancy was conducted within the framework of the 10th European Development Fund (EDF), under which the Caribbean Export Development Agency is responsible for implementing the Regional Private Sector Development Programme (RPSDP). It was
undertaken by the Visual & Performing Arts Jamaica (Trevor Fearon, Katrine Smith) in partnership with KEA (Yolanda Smits, Arthur Le Gall, Ayla Assy‐Lacoste). The research was conducted over several months culminating in May 2015 in all 16 CARIFORUM

It involved desk research, interviews with approximately 75 individuals in the EU, and an online survey which garnered inputs from more than 400 creative professionals across CARIFORUM in the 6 creative industries being explored: Music (recorded and live), Film, Fashion, Jewellery, Painting, and Arts & Craft.
