Broadly speaking, the Performing arts include the dance, music, opera, theater, and circus arts.
Artists participating in these endeavors are frequently in front of an audience – but increasingly are presented through other media channels, including the Internet.
Performing arts are also supported by workers in related fields, such as songwriting and stagecraft.
The international counsel of museums, defines a museum as: a permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment, for the purposes of education, study, and enjoyment“.
The gambling industry segment within the United States continues growth in selected regions, while appearing to have peaked in some regions. An increased degree of “social acceptability” has influenced and driven some of the growth. Job growth in the sector appears uneven, depending on the geographic region, but for those areas expanding, job opportunity and pay tend to be above average than the US as a whole.
Together, the Arts Entertainment and Recreation industry segment provide for opportunistic business growth through institutional and entrepreneurial ventures.
