DOI: CC-90/WS-1.Publisher: Paris : Unesco, 1989Description: 21 p.Series: Informes/Estudis: CC/CSP/CP/01Summary: The format of this paper will be as follows. Part 1 will deal with general methodological and definitional issues associated with the topic of employment and the arts. Part II will provide a sketch of the scale of the employment involved in some key areas of the arts industry in Ireland. These data will provide only illustrative examples of the employment potential of the arts. The provision of an estimate of overall employment in the arts in Ireland must await the generation of far more detailed data than exist at present. Part III will look at the extent to which the arts industry, and therefore arts employment, is rooted in the traded sector of the Irish economy, as the traded sector is considered by many to be the key sector of the economy. In particular, it will examine the connection between the arts and overseas tourism in Ireland. Part IV will conclude the paper. The paper, then, can only give a flavour of the employment and tourism contribution of the arts in Ireland. However, even the patchy evidence that is available does suggest. at a minimum, that more extensive research will reveal that this contribution may be rather large and that the arts sector could play an increasing role, especially in the traded sector of the economy, in years to come.
