Introducing creative industries to academic context of arts means avoiding all the confusion and/or misunderstanding made on global talk pro exclusively negative influences coming from commercialism, industry, media, manipulation, violence and fake arts (i.e. kitsch) production. The following discourse is based on fundamental arts topics, argumented in the various approaches to the phenomenon of creative ideas, their application and dissemination in the global village. Doctoral programe at the Academy of Arts in Belgrade initiated as ENTERTAINMENT & DREAMS’ INDUSTRY, renamed (according to the objections, i.e. missunderstanding of Commission for Accreditation and Quality Assurance) in CREATIVE INDUSTRIES expects support of all experts devoted to beauty, art, aesthetics, easthetic experience, taste (being an etiquette: frequently seduced by novelties, similarities, associations, habits, manners and antiquities), and critique (being representative of the most talented public); as well as to the media context: medium in art and communication, mass media, mass media between reality and/or truth, mass media interpretations of (non)artificial reality. Such a concept elaboration is developed through the concrete art appearances of creative industries in: dreams’ industry, industry of public roles, film & TV critique, image creation & promotion, psychology of glory, media arts, creative ideas industry, taste & ethos, art of moving pictures, sound & music in dreams’ industry, movie & digital media, theatre as the artistic manufacture, art of new technologies: on-line solutions. The sophisticated “practice makes perfect” method is included in almost all contemplations on creative industries appreciation, for the art of creative industries perfects global civilization.
