Creative North Carolina
There has been an 8% increase in creative jobs in the last year. According to the NC Arts Council, "Creative Industries are directly and indirectly responsible for almost 320,000 full time, part time, and sole proprietor jobs." These creative industry jobs generate over $12 billion in wages, salaries and benefits - $2 billion more than the impact four years ago." The arts support us all!
