The Otis Report on the Creative Economy, now in its 13th year, is an invaluable tool that measures the impact and influence of such creative industries as Fashion, Architecture, and Fine and Performing Arts on California’s economy. The 2020 Otis Report, which launches on Wednesday, February 12 at 10am, focuses on Los Angeles County, as well as eight regions within the state, including the Bay Area, Inland Empire, and the Central Valley. Additionally, this year’s report includes two spotlights: one on arts education as a critical training ground for the future of the creative economy and its leaders, and another on the gig economy and the increase in nontraditional work arrangements in creative industries.
The release of the 2020 Otis Report on the Creative Economy will be livestreamed from an event at the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles beginning. To view the livestream, see below.
