Cultural and creative sectors and industries are a significant source of jobs and income. They are a driver of innovation and creative skills, within cultural sectors and beyond. They also have significant social impacts, from supporting health and well-being, to promoting social inclusion and local social capital.

The report outlines international trends with new data, including at subnational scale. It addresses issues in cultural and creative sectors in terms of employment, business development, cultural participation and funding, both public and private. It provides analysis of how these sectors contribute to economic growth and inclusion, taking into account the impact of COVID-19 related crisis on jobs and firms. Finally, it offers recommendations on how to capitalise on the role of cultural and creative sectors in national and local recovery strategies.


Il rapporto in breve

Un settore molto diversificato che apporta molteplici benefici economici e sociali I settori culturali e creativi (SCC) sono molto diversificati. Gli SCC comprendono biblioteche e centri culturali, società di produzione cinematografica, festival, musei, servizi globali di streaming, teatri, studi di design e architettura, nonché artisti. Tuttavia, le loro strutture di costo e i loro modelli di impresa variano in modo significativo, dalle istituzioni pubbliche e senza scopo di lucro alle aziende lucrative e a modello misto.
