Nachhaltige Arbeit und Beschäftigung in den Wiener 'Creative Industries'

Translated title Sustainable work and employment in the ‘creative industries’ in Vienna
Description The project analyses successful arrangements of sustainable work and employment in the creative industries (CI) in Vienna through comparisons between CI sectors and through a comparison between Vienna and Hamburg. Based on earlier studies on the CI in Vienna, the project for the first time investigates economic, organisational and biographical aspects of the sustainability of work in both the audio-visual (multimedia, film/video, television/radio) and the visual industries (graphic design/advertising, design/fashion, architecture). The aim is to show how sustainable or precarious work in creative professions really is in Vienna and how the sustainability of work in these areas can be improved.
