creative economy, burnout, creativity, creative occupations, industrial and organizational psychology
Creativity is an intrinsic part of the human life; however, it is one of the most challenging concepts to be understood. In this paper, I am examining occupations driven by creativity, their economic significance, and how sustainable these occupations are for the creative employees. I will be particularly looking at burnout and its precipitating factors as a way to understand the wellness of the creative workforce. Creative occupations, if fostered properly, can lead to job growth, increased income, and potential for investment in vulnerable communities. This makes them valuable resources for urban economic development goals. Literature suggests that there is a negative relationship between creativity and burnout but, it is largely understudied so I note organizational features that could contribute to burnout as well as offer areas for future research.
