City’s creative economy continues to grow


The Minneapolis area ranks fifth on a list of the most “creatively vital” cities in the country, according to a report to a City Council committee Wednesday.

The city’s creative sector contributed $831 million to the city’s economy in 2013, according to the Creative Vitality Index 2014 update.

Retail sales from the city’s creative industries are nearly equal to that of the sports industries. Sales from the creative sector were roughly $520 million in 2013 compared to $533 million for sports.
