Important Artist Survey




We are reaching out to share some exciting news for our local cultural sector. The Cultural Council for Palm Beach County invites local creative professionals across all disciplines and representatives of cultural organizations to participate in its new Cultural Sector Needs Assessment survey, which opens online on March 15, 2022. The anonymous survey will be conducted by Decision Support Partners and supported by Mosaic Group.

The timing of the survey is critical, as our county’s cultural sector emerges from a $360 million loss in economic activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Results from the survey will help the Cultural Council understand the sectors current needs and create future plans that support its continued recovery. Respondents must live or work in Palm Beach County.

The survey is open only until April 1, takes less than 10 minutes to complete, and is available in Spanish and Creole. I invite you to join The No More Starving Artists Foundation and let your voice be heard. Please visit https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/6744836/CCPartner to begin the survey.

Thank you for your continued support of our cultural community.
