With 31, 27 and 20% respectively, theatre, music and performing arts hold the lion’s share of employed alumni. They work in public relations, they are production or programming assistants, managers of cultural sites…. The cultural heritage sector accounts for 13% of alumni in museums, agencies for cultural heritage enhancement, on sites, etc…to conclude, 2% are found in the sector of plastic arts, 5% in circus and street arts, 2% in conservatories, 8% in opera houses, 4% in the dance industry.
Another myth busted. If the association sector remains the most important by number of companies in culture, it accounts for only 14% of employed EAC alumni. Many of the latter (21%) can be found in event and communication agencies, in ministries, local communities and institutions (25) and of course in museums, both in the sectors of preservation or communication, or in the field of services to the public.
