At the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA), one of our missions is to strengthen the region’s creative economy through research that informs public policy. That is why we partnered with the Economic and Public Policy Research group of the UMass Donahue Institute (UMDI) to answer a few important questions. What are New England’s creative enterprises? Who are New England’s creative workers? How do they overlap? How do they vary by state and what role are they playing in the overall economy? By finding data on and accounting for creative sector employment, income, demographics, and socioeconomic attributes, this report aims to provide a full story of creative work and workers in New England.
