What are Cultural Industries Moreover, following O’Connor (1999), the study focuses on individuals working in cultural industries with cultural occupations (for example, architects, librarians, authors, journalists, graphic designers, actors, etc.) and without cultural occupations (for example, in the editorial sector, employees in the printing industry).
