The Arts Council have launched a survey that sets out to capture the impact of the Covid-19 on artists. They are gathering information to understand what actions the Arts Council can take to support and advocate for artists in the short to medium term. They have separately undertaken a survey with arts organisations, this survey is for individual artists to respond to.
This survey is for completion by professional artists. The Arts Council defines this as a person who identifies themselves and is recognised by their peers as an artist. A person who is actively pursuing a career as an artist in any art form, and who considers their arts work as their main profession or career. This applies even if their work in the arts is not their main source of income or they have other employment.

How long will it take?
It will depend on how much you have been impacted and how much information you have to input. You can click between the pages to see the different sections. Note – once you select certain options more questions may appear requesting more detail.
Do I have to answer all the questions?
No – but there are some mandatory questions at the start and end.
Not all questions will be relevant to you. If you don’t understand or can’t answer the question – that’s ok – just move on.
How will the Arts Council use the information I provide?

They want to hear the perspective of artists to inform their work with organisations and to inform our discussions with the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
