How can lower earnings of arts and design graduates be explained in the context of the higher rate of gross value added (GVA) growth in the creative industries?

Background

Research is also needed to help AHT’s understanding of international cultural markets, where the UK sits comparatively and the impact culture has on international diplomacy. Protecting the UK’s cultural assets and understanding ways to consolidate and make better use of crucial data across AHT sectors is also of interest and more research on best practice would be useful.
