The Creative & Cultural Industries
Music, dance, theater, design, and visual arts, it is hard to imagine life without. The Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI’s) form an essential part of the foundation of our society and are indispensable from our daily lives.
In Europe alone, it’s estimated that 2.5 million people working in the CCI’s are independent workers, or as we’d like to call them, freelancers. In certain sub-sectors, like the Performing Arts, freelancers make up for almost 60% to 70% of the total workforce, easily outperforming any other sector in any other industry. Due to the sector’s dependency on subsidies and the lack of full-time jobs, freelancing is often a must.
