Philly Arts and Creativity Report

"Creative Vitality in Philadelphia: A Three Year Report" takes a snapshot of the creative industry in the region, with statistics from 2006-2008. The 17 page pdf report is available on the city's website:

The Western States ARts Federation uses set criteria to develop a Creative Vitality Index. In the Philadelphia area roughly 17,000 people work in the creative occupations, which is below the national average; some aspects of the creative industry are better represented than others. For example, in the three years covered by the report the city lost camera operators but gained sound engineering technicians. The number of writers and authors was steady. The last five pages of the report are profiles of individual artists or artistic groups in the area.
