2.Consultancy Services for “ Mapping and Assessment of Creative Industries in Agra, Braj Region and Buddhist Circuit”

Objective of the Consultancy

As one of its core activities, the Project is expected to provide selected craftspeople, entrepreneurs and artists in its target areas with technical, advisory and financial support to overcome bottlenecks and nurture opportunities for sustained employment and increased income opportunities through tourism linkages.

To this end, this assignment will map and assess the creative industries with the highest poverty reduction impact through tourism linkages in the Project areas. This in turn should offer guidance on where and how to best take action to support selected creative industries through a road map of actions to be supported under the Project.

Scope of Work

At the end of this assignment, the Project team should have a deeper understanding of opportunities and bottlenecks faced by the creative industries in each Project target area, and a clear road map of actions through which the Project can contribute to address and incentivize them, respectively.

To this end, the consultancy may use a range of quantitative and qualitative research tools, including statistical analysis, surveys, interviews, focus groups and web-based research, as appropriate. Quantitative and qualitative methods may be used in order to establish trends over time and to compare the creative sector to the rest of the economy (quantitative) while providing a comprehensive picture of the creative industries (qualitative) in each Project target area. The assignment should consider inter alia the following methods:

a) Literature review

  • Review previous work before carrying out new research.
  • Assess work that was completed earlier or which was done for nearby areas to provide a useful context for the mapping and give guidance drawn from the experiences of others.
  • Identify gaps in knowledge about the creative industries in each target area which the Project could address.

b) Analysis of official government data

  • Assess the creative industries' contribution to employment, livelihood, business numbers, among other measures. There is a range of international classification systems used in most countries from which creative industry data can be derived.

c) Industry-specific studies

  • Carry out surveys of individual industries through a range of qualitative methods, such as interviews with businesses. These would allow the researchers to explore issues in the sub-sector in more depth.

d) Analysis of non-governmental data

  • Compile statistics from alternative sources such as private sector businesses produce databases of firms for marketing or other purposes. Trade associations and industry bodies may have registers of members which could be drawn upon. Other useful sources of in ormatio'n may include trade newspapers and magazines, research carried out by universities, tr,lde unions or NGOs, online social and professional networks for

e) Directories of businesses

  • If there is no reliable non-governmental data to draw on, then the research team may carry out primary research. The best place to start mapping in such a case may be to create a directory of creative businesses in each Project target area or locality. Researchers can draw on a number of sources, including their own knowledge and contacts within the sector, to help compile such a list. These can then be used in a 'snowball' survey, where the businesses known to the researchers are asked to name any other creative businesses they know, which in tum are asked for the names of other businesses, and so on. This can also be carried out online and reach into the informal sector, which government statistics are unlikely to include.

f) Case studies

  • Supplement the broad overview of the creative industries with a series of case studies, selecting a handful of projects or organizations working in the creative sector and subjecting them to a detailed analysis of their economic and social impacts.

g) Report and Road Map

Upon the mapping completion, the consultancy should prepare an easy to read report with the main description of the mapped creative industries in each Project target area and findings from the research, and a road map with doable recommendations and actions to overcome constraints and nurture opportunities for identified creative industries to flourish. The report data should be disaggregated by gender, caste, age and other key socioeconomic parameters, as possible, and may include:

  • Profile of the creative industry including inter alia: (a) degree and type of organization (b) scale of economic activity (e.g., value of sales, overall monthly income, number of days of employment in a year); (c) skill level; (d) product/talent mix; (e) technology applied; (f) access to finance; (g) market exposure; (h) access to healthcare and insurance; (i) degree of safety and security and its impact on economic activity. The profile should also consider differences between household enterprises, self-employed and employed.
  • Business development, intermediary financial institutional, marketing institutions, NGOs, other agencies and networks that work with the creative industry, wherever possible, and assessment of the support services offered as well as the constraints they face.
  • Constraints and opportunities faced by those in the creative industry (highlight those pertaining to women/ST/SC and youth, wherever possible), and the factors that inhibit or contribute to competitiveness.
  • Actual and potential sources of innovation in each industry.
  • Gaps at various points of the creative industries (e.g., input supplies, production infrastructure, market linkages, access to government schemes) that impede the realization of the market potential estimated as part of the first task.
  • Opportunities to overcome such constraints.

h) Suggestive Creative Industries in the intervention areas;

  • Agra - Marble, Inlay works, Pettha, Leather Items, Handicraft, Sculptor, beads & other souvenir items etc.
  • Braj - Floriculture, Cow Economy (Milk Products, Prasad, renewable sources of energy & other related cow-products), Handicraft, Krishna Costumes, Mala bead, Tulsi Mala, Photo Framing, Sculptor, Performing arts - Raas Leela, Folk Music & arts etc.
  • Buddhist - Local traditional handicraft items, Terracotta Items, Agro products related with tourism industry, Wood work and other souvenir items.
