Survey – Impact of Covid-19 on the cultural workforce

Arts council England written in black and grey to form a circle.

Arts Council England would like DACS members to take the time to share your experiences of how Covid-19 has impacted you.

It goes without saying that it has been a challenging 18 months for all of us and the cultural sector has been particularly hard hit by the impacts of Covid-19.

To understand the extent of this in more detail, Arts Council England has commissioned ICM Unlimited to undertake the largest independent research survey of its kind to explore the impact of the pandemic on yourself and others working in the cultural sector.

Your views in this survey will help Arts Council England to make changes in the sector, such as to shift policy or better direct funding. And to do this, they need your help.

Arts Council England want to hear from everyone in the cultural sector, whether you currently work in, are looking to enter, or have recently left it. They’re looking for input from across all employment types, seniority levels and working patterns; whether freelance, employed by a cultural organisation, or another type of role within the arts, museums and libraries.

We’d be really grateful if you could spare 10 minutes of your time to complete this survey, which will ask questions about how the pandemic has affected you. And please do share the survey link with anyone else you know who is, wants to or has recently worked in the cultural sector.

The survey will close on Tuesday 23 November.
