This dissertation examines the term “cultural industries” from its negative first use in the early 20th century by the Frankfurt School and its connection with the emergence of mass society and culture to its current positive connotation. The European Parliament considers cultural industries to be those companies and organizations that offer intellectual works that add economic value and, at the same time, new values to individuals and societies in terms of information, education and entertainment. The traditional forms of cultural industries (cinema, music, publishing) are joined by creative industries, the arts, technology and cultural tourism. Cultural goods, according to the UNESCO classification, include: cultural heritage, printed and literary works, music and the performing arts, audiovisual media, socio-cultural activities, sports and tourism. The dissertation will explore the contribution of the discipline of Creative Writing to the “reconciliation” of the economic dimension of the cultural industry and the arts through the distinction and recognition of the heterogeneity of the characteristics of the administration and management of organizations-businesses that produce cultural products. The costing, production, distribution and monitoring of a cultural television broadcast of a television station of the Region of Western Macedonia (Kozani) and the use of modern audiovisual media will be recorded in order to show that today culture is an asset of a new cultural, creative, economy that, with the inexhaustible source of human creativity as its main axis, dynamically interconnects the spheres of innovation (technological creativity), entrepreneurship (economic creativity) and the economy.
