The Mass Artists Leaders Coalition is working on a joint venture to conduct a survey of working artists of all disciplines, and they are calling it the “By Artists For Artists” survey. It is a continuation of a survey conducted in 2009 that worked to prove the positive economic impact of creative efforts in communities across Massachusetts. All artists, creative entrepreneurs and makers are asked to take the survey.
The purposes for the survey include – data collection, economic impact study at the local level and by discipline, and to assess the needs and determine the demographics of our local artists. The responses will be used to help policy makers and funders better understand what is needed to support a creative economy in Massachusetts.
All responses will be kept confidential, with the results being available to the public in November. The survey closes and must be taken by November 1, 2017. It is for Massachusetts artists/makers/creative entrepreneurs only.
