B.C. Arts & Culture Sector COVID-19 Impact Survey
Spring 2021 Edition
Read the FAQs below and complete the survey embedded below.
As a follow-up to our impact report released in June (details here) and December (details here) we are once again asking artists, arts workers, and arts and culture organizations to help us understand where you are at today.
The survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes but will vary depending on how many questions you choose to answer, and how in-depth you choose to respond.
In order to have a global picture and a more detailed understanding of the impact felt by the cultural sector in British Columbia and across Canada, non-personally identifying survey results may be integrated with other datasets and/or shared with analysts and researchers with expertise in cultural participation and consumption.
For greater clarity, data we will NOT share response fields where we ask for personally identifiable details like your name, email, and organization.
This survey is for all arts disciplines, artists, arts workers, cultural organizations, and museums across B.C.
For organizations, we ask questions about human resources, logistics for in-person activities, financial priorities, and other impacts facing your organization.
For individuals, we ask about financial impact, employment, comfort in different environments, and social impacts.
We also ask everyone about financial priorities, mental health, optimism, and gaps you currently identify in supports from all levels of government.
Most of the questions are optional, so you may choose to only answer questions you're comfortable responding to.
GVPTA executive director Kenji Maeda will be the primary person accessing the raw data in order to validate data and to create the aggregate report. Amanda Peters, GVPTA communications manager, has access to the raw data in case of exceptional circumstances, but has thus far for previous Impact Surveys has not required access.
Personally identifiable information such as name, email, and organization name will be removed if some of the data is requested to be combined or reviewed with other research done across Canada.
If you have any questions or concerns about how your data will be used or accessed, please email email@example.com.
A report will be emailed to everyone who participated in the survey, and will be shared through our newsletter, website, and social channels.
The report will also be circulated to federal, provincial, and municipal governments, other funders, and stakeholders in the community.
The deadline to complete the survey is Wednesday, April 21.
We ask that you help spread the word about the survey to BC-based artists, arts workers, and arts and culture organizations in order for us to have a strong dataset for the report.
