Cultural and Creative Industries (ICC) form an ecosystem that benefits from both favorable socio-economic environments and the opportunities opened by the technological change. This article establishes the existence of correlations between the indicators that allow contextualizing creative activities in the framework of Spanish regions, in general, and of Catalonia in particular. GDP per capita and education level feedback each other positively; education is associated to lower risks of poverty and high rates of opportunities, infrastructures and digital uses; and the availability and intensive management of information and communication technologies (ICT) is inherent to greater cultural consumption and the enjoyment of favorable economic conditions. The methodology used in the present analysis shows for the first time the disaggregated weight of CCI in Catalonia, and its relationship with the rest of the Spanish regions.
