Last Thursday, the Otis College of Art & Design released its 2021 Report on the Creative Economy. Begun in 2007, the annual report, prepared in partnership with Beacon Economics, examines the creative economy of Los Angeles and California across five fields, including fine arts and performing arts, architecture, entertainment and digital media, creative products, and fashion.
New York City has a world-renowned arts, entertainment and recreation sector, featuring celebrated performance venues, museums and sports teams as well as innovative artists and centers of creativity.

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland, on behalf of Department for Communities (DfC) and in collaboration with Future Screens NI, has announced details of 1,562 individuals working in the Creative Economy, who are set to benefit from £6,910,794 of emergency funding.
All in all, the cultural and creative sectors account for 413 billion euro (5,5%) in terms of value added.
