Austin’s Creative Class, Affordability and Creative Ecosystems

Multiple survey and datasets, including the Music Census, Austin Music Industry Economic Impact Study 2016, the Cultural Needs Assessment, the 2013 ArtSpace report, Mayor Adler’s Music & Creative Ecosystem Omnibus Resolution, as well as the dislocation of numerous arts organizations, indicate that Austin’s rapid rise in property values is displacing low-margin music venues, galleries, studios, and non-profit performance spaces even as demand for such usage grows. The pace of the real estate market simply outstrips the pace of fundraising and creative industries often lack access to affordable credit.

The loss of creative infrastructure leads to the loss of creative industry jobs, resulting in out-migration of the creative class and a decline in arts, cultural, and creative output that would harm the reputation and character of our city that is known as a creative magnet.

However, Austin’s rapid population increase presents the opportunity to develop new audiences, increase arts education, and grow creative infrastructure in order to stabilize and grow jobs for artists and creatives. Several organizations across the city are working on plans to do just that, including ideas for redeveloping Red River as a cultural tourism destination, affordable live/work housing for artists and an Eastside Creative District that would increase the number of stages, galleries and classrooms for performances, visual arts and arts education.
