The best way to support our creative industry is to support you.
With over 50% of the creative industry either freelance or short term hire we are left without many of the same benefits of an employee. The collective buying power of EVOKE will allow us to greatly reduce your barrier to enter a Health Insurnace Plan and a 401K program.
The value of arts and cultural production in America in 2016 was more than $800 billion, amounting to 4.2% of gross domestic product. This is larger than the economic output of Sweden or Switzerland. The arts contribute more to the national economy than do the construction, mining, utilities, insurance, and accommodation and food services industries. They have been growing much faster than the economy as a whole. Sources National Endowment for the Arts, U.S. Department of Commerce ( 2017)
California in 2019, the creative industries supported 2.6 million jobs, $227.8 billion in labor income, and $604.9 billion in annual output. Of those 2.6 million total jobs, 1.0 million represent workers directly employed in the creative industries and the other 1.6 million are jobs indirectly generated by the state’s creative industries. In total, both the direct employment generated by the state’s creative industries and the indirect employment they create through multiplier effects constitute 15.4% of California’s total employment.
Los Angeles County accounts for roughly 40% of all direct creative industry employment in California, and the County is home to roughly one in three of the jobs indirectly generated from the creative industries statewide.
