Career opportunities

Global spending on entertainment and media is expected to rise to $2.6 trillion by 2023. In fact, the United Nations reports that the creative economy is one of the world's fastest growing sectors for income generation, job creation, and export earnings.

According to British Columbia 2025 Labor Market Outlook, the motion picture and video industries lead employment growth in southwestern British Columbia. Annual revenues for film, TV, and digital media combined add up to $3 billion. Consequently, opportunities abound for artists in occupations that support digital media, motion pictures, broadcasting, photography, and the performing arts.

Other opportunities exist to pursue a career in the field of commercial art and work for design agencies, marketing agencies, photography studios, and publishers. You may also find employment as a gallery curator, art director, or teacher. Or you may opt to be self-employed as a professional artist in your discipline of choice. Alternatively, you may go on to pursue further education, or seek employment in other related industries such as business, tourism, entertainment, broadcasting, and more.
