The Creative Economy is a term used to describe the aspect of our economy that hinges upon creativity and cultural uniqueness. Creative Economy is the aspect of our local economy that thrives upon inventiveness, innovation, imagination, inspiration, and ingenuity. A recent report by the Vermont Council on Culture and Innovation estimates 14,000 jobs and 4.5% of the state's total workforce falls within this category. While art and culture ventures – such as Open Studio Weekend and heritage festivals – are a big part of this, when you start looking for the Creative Economy you can find it just about anywhere.
