The pandemic has dealt a terrible blow to the creative economy industries — including design, fashion, film, television, music, and gaming — which generate annual revenues of $2.25 trillion and employ more than 30 million people globally. Meanwhile, technology advancements, such as blockchain, NFTs, streaming, etc, are democratizing both the production and distribution of content. The creative industries are critical to the post-pandemic global economic recovery and resilience agenda and this panel will broaden how you think about the creative industry, as well as emphasize the value of the industry as an engine of global startup growth and cultural diversity.
