ILO Report for the Technical Meeting on the Future of Work in the Arts and Entertainment sector

The International Labour Organization met on 13 – 17 February in Geneva to discuss opportunities and challenges for decent work in the arts and entertainment sector, in the context of digital technologies, globalization, environmental sustainability, demographic changes and a human-centred COVID-19 recovery, with the aim of adopting conclusions, including recommendations for future action.

The arts and entertainment sector has both cultural and economic dimensions. It creates experiences, rather than just goods. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged discussion of the broader culture as representing, in some instances, a “global public good”, through its capacity to promote social cohesion, increase people’s resilience and connect communities to different forms of cultural expression, in addition to its commercial value.

This report will focus on full and productive employment and decent work for workers and enterprises that produce specific goods and deliver services, in particular on the arts and entertainment side of the cultural and creative ecosystem, including the performing arts; music; dance; both live and recorded performance (sound or audiovisual); the visual arts; books; and gaming and animation.
