THE ARTS EQUAL BIG BUSINESS
The creative industries are much more than a regional amenity; they have become significant economic engines. Ohio’s creative industries have experienced significant growth in the past few years. They now account for more than $41 billion in economic activity while supporting nearly 290,000 jobs annually, and every creative category has experienced an increase in output since 2015.
