Report: More than 250,000 creative jobs lost due to pandemic

Here in California, creative industries — like fashion, theater, and film production — have lost more than 250,000 jobs since February, according to a report by Otis College of Art and Design.

Every year, Otis puts out a report on jobs in the creative economy, which are essential to Southern California’s regional economic health. But will these jobs return after the pandemic?
