Culture and cultural activities are an important part of our lives. Creative industries, including media and networks, are among the fastest growing industries in the economy. Vista Analyse follows issues in the cultural sector and creative industries through a significant number of projects. Vista Analyse participates in Kunnskapsverket, where we, in cooperation with pedagogues at Lillehammer University College, research and disseminate knowledge about industrial development in cultural industries. Key issues analysed in this knowledge center is whether the current general instruments for the private sector are appropriate for the cultural industries, and what defines a cultural and/or creative industry. Vista Analyse has also carried out several projects concerning the use and preservation of cultural monuments and sites, and has assessed the work counties do as regional managers of cultural heritage.
