Urban planners, arts managers, economic developers, and business and municipal leaders are increasingly using terms like “creative economy,” “creative class,” and “cultural economy.” These categories cover a wide range of occupations, groups, and sectors, including the visual, performing, and literary arts, as well as practical disciplines like architecture, graphic design, and marketing. Whatever the title, the fact that vocabulary is being used to connect culture and the economy shows that planning, economic development, and arts and culture are all interconnected

There are numerous connections between the activities of the arts and cultural sector and the health of the local economy. Creativity, the arts, and culture can

(1). Boost a community’s ability to compete. 

(2). Erect a structure on which to define a sense of place.

(3). Bring in fresh and travelling populations.

(4). Integrate the goals of civic and commercial leaders to help create a workforce with the necessary skills.

There are four things to watch out for when pursuing ideas for economic development in a novel manner.

1. Concentrating innovation through both physical density and human capital benefits economic progress. A multiplier effect can happen by placing businesses, artists, and cultural facilities close to one another.

2. Recognising and promoting a community’s artistic and cultural assets is a crucial part of economic development. Recognising and promoting community assets in innovative ways can help maintain a high standard of living while luring a talented workforce and prosperous businesses.

3. Crowds can gather for arts and cultural events both within and outside of the neighbourhood. Building economic and social capital is facilitated by increasing both tourist numbers and local engagement.

4. By utilising local resources, planners can intentionally link the tourism and manufacturing sectors with the arts and culture sector to enhance economic benefits.
