Abstract

This paper takes a much broader approach than do typical economic impact studies in order to describe and illustrate the mechanisms through which creative activity and creative industries contribute to the regional economy. We examine how these industries are linked to and supportive of other sectors of the economy. In addition, we broaden the definition of ?creative services? to include the arts, culture, and entertainment industries, all of which comprise the ?creative sector.?
