The International Labour Organization (ILO, or OIT in french), the UN labour agency, has just published a long study on “the future of work in the arts and entertainment sector”. The Zurich Centre For Creatives Economies at ZHdK University had prepared a “working paper” in 2022, part statistics, part policy, which was used for this research. A technical meeting, which took place in Geneva in February 13-17 at ILO, complemented this overall project.

The study focuses on the “opportunities and challenges to decent work in the arts and entertainment sector in the context of key drivers of change and a human-centred COVID-19 recovery”. It also seeks to promote “the fullest employment potential of the arts and entertainment sector to ensure a future of work that is inclusive, sustainable and resilient”. Recommendations, specific to this agency, were also made.
