In 2019, the City of Seattle released the study, There’s Something About Seattle: 2019 Creative Economy Report. The goals of the report were threefold: 1) Define the Creative Economy; 2) Quantify the Creative Economy; 3) Inspire action. 

A Community-Centered Road Map Towards an Equitable and Inclusive Creative Economy, set out to engage directly with creatives, placing priority on creatives of color to explore the question: How can the City grow, support and retain creatives while minimizing disparities and inequity within the creative economy? 

The goals included in this report are associated with recommended actions that suggest a collaborative working relationship across City departments, in partnership with the Seattle Arts Commission and the Seattle Music Commission.
