An Unimaginable Imagination
Sarasota County has crafted a culture that inspires invention. Once home of “The Greatest Show on Earth’s” John Ringling and his wife, it’s no wonder creative jobs in Sarasota have become commonplace. Cities like Venice, North Port and Englewood now find themselves at the convergence of creativity and tech, with key sectors like architectural services, software publishing, graphic design, advertising, public relations and broadcast journalism.
Bradenton is a quickly growing city for the arts, with regular events hosted by the Manatee Performing Arts Center and the master-planned community of Lakewood Ranch. We also can’t forget the Village of the Arts — Florida’s largest community of collaborating artists.
If white sandy beaches and prestigious institutions like the Ringling Museum of Art inspire you to do your best creative work, the counties of Sarasota and Manatee are amazing options.
