Urban Politics #138: Creating Space For Artists

September 26th, 2002

For some time now many of Seattle’s blue collar workers who traditionally lived and worked in downtown and other close-in neighborhoods have been pushed out of the City by high rents. People, who work in the arts industry, including artists, comprise a significant portion of these displaced workers. A new nation-wide study by Americans For The Arts reports that in 2000 $134 billion was produced in total economic arts activity in the U.S. This activity generated 4.8 million full-time equivalent jobs, $89.4 billion in household income, and $6.6 billion in local government tax revenues. Ironically, most workers in the arts can no longer afford to live in the urban areas to which their activities initially brought economic viability.
