By gathering data such as small and medium industries (IKM), creative industries, documents, interviews and using qualitative description approach as a method of analysis, this research finds at least five important results. The first result is people with deaf-mute condition and physicaldisability can work on all types of creative industries but for mental disability as well as mental-physical disability, they can only work on certain types of industry. Second, craft industry is the most widely sector for people with disabilities to earn more income. Third, Bantul and Gunungkidul provide many jobs opportunities on creative industries compared to other districts. This research also finds as the fourth result that the potential of disability people to work on creative industries decreases from 2014-2015 except for Yogyakarta City.
