On May 26, Mayor Todd Gloria and the Workforce Partnership will host a free Creative Industries Job and Resource Fair. The community is invited to meet local employers and community partners with opportunities and resources in a variety of creative fields such as marketing, fine arts, web development, theater, graphic design and more. “After a dramatic job loss in the creative industries due to the pandemic, this event with Mayor Todd Gloria and the Workforce Partnership is recognizing and promoting the future of career opportunities in creative occupations,” says Peter Callstrom, CEO of the Workforce Partnership. “Our goal is to provide our community with equal opportunities and resources to pursue successful and fulfilling careers.”

In partnership with Mayor Todd Gloria, Dreams & Ducats, Access, Inc., and The One Club for Creativity San Diego, the Workforce Partnership is creating more upward mobility and an equitable workforce for San Diegans interested in learning about opportunities in creative careers and how to successfully pursue those opportunities. The job and resource fair is open to the public and anyone 16 and older can access resources and find employment opportunities. 

“Creative industries are a powerful economic engine in San Diego, generating more than $1 billion in economic impact each year,” says Mayor Todd Gloria. “By connecting San Diegans with jobs in creative fields, we are providing opportunities for the next generation to thrive and impact the vibrancy of our city while doing so.”  

According to a report from UNESCO, in 2020, ten million jobs in creative industries worldwide were lost due to the pandemic with California being hit the hardest. As creative industries recover from the severe impacts of the pandemic, it is important, now more than ever, to promote and protect creative thinking, innovation and problem-solving to help lead our economy recover.
