Cultural and creative industries (CCI) have, in recent years, been a prominent feature of policy initiatives across Northern Europe. This paper approaches CCI as a global, hegemonic 'script' or 'myth' that has spread across national boundaries and policy circles and, as a result, been translated in the light of historical trajectories, local dynamics, and strategic imperatives. In doing so, we shed critical light on ongoing dynamics across the Nordic countries, and more specifically, in the Norwegian national context, by illustrating how CCIs have - in the last decade or so - permeated policy frameworks and strategic initiatives at the national, regional and local levels. The paper concludes with some suggestions for future comparative research studies within Europe and beyond.
