New report gives snapshot of region's creative economy

The Economic & Public Policy Research group has produced an analysis of the impact of New England's"creative economy". The Institute produced the report for the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA). 

From the Boston Globe article:

The creative sector plays a larger role in New England’s economy than in other parts of the country, employing more than 300,000 people who earn roughly $17 billion each year.

But the sector has also seen dramatic shifts since the Great Recession. The creative industries lost more than 55,000 payroll jobs over the past decade, as many workers have migrated to join the so-called “gig economy.”

The report was produced for NEFA by the Economic and Public Policy Research Group of the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute as part of NEFA’s ongoing effort to describe the region’s creative landscape.

Read more about the report on the NEFA website.
