There are thousands of us in Minneapolis. Some work in studios in converted industrial buildings. Some work in back bedrooms in their homes. Some work in downtown offices. Some write. Some create fine art. Others perform. We’re “creatives,” and we’re a sizable economic engine.

It’s the third year the study has been conducted and it includes craft artists as well as advertising managers and much in between. The study looked at facts and figures collected in 2016.
