The Birmingham Post reports that the Creative Industries are Booming in the West Midlands with 60,000 people working in the sector, expected to increase by 7% over the next year. All good. Except D’log wonders where exactly they’re getting their figures from. It’s a fair point. Where do you draw the line on what counts as “creative”? And how do you count all the self-employed and part-time people?
(And if there really are 60,000 creatives, does that mean I have to blog about them all? Cripes!)
