These sub-sectors include architecture (engineering/town planning), crafts and manufacturing, visual arts, films and audio-visuals, design, fashion design, gaming, marketing and communication (including events), literature, digital media and publishing, performing arts, and music.
The primary objectives of the Luxembourg Creative Industries Cluster are comprehensive and forward-thinking, designed to catalyze growth and development within the creative industry. Some of these key objectives include:

- Mapping the Local Creative Ecosystem: By systematically mapping the local creative industry ecosystem, the cluster generates a data-driven understanding of the economic realities for the country and its market players. This insightful analysis contributes to informed decision-making and strategic planning.
- Creating Synergies and Filling Gaps: The cluster fosters synergies among creative companies, bridging gaps in the ecosystem that private markets may have yet to address. This collaborative approach ensures a holistic and well-rounded creative industry in Luxembourg.
- Entrepreneurial Skills Enhancement: With a focus on empowering companies, the cluster aims to enhance the entrepreneurial skills of its members. This involves providing resources, training, and support to foster a culture of innovation and business excellence.
