The purpose of this follow-up survey is to collect and compare information on how the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is affecting the arts and culture sector on Long Island.
Our goals in conducting this survey are to:
1. Identify Needs: This survey will help determine how we can best support our members during this unprecedented time;
2. Inform Funders: Using the information collected through this survey, LIAA will produce a report demonstrating the need for emergency funding for the creative sector affected by COVID-19 as well as the full economic impact it has had on our region;
3. Share Information and Experiences: We will share the survey results with those who complete it, connecting arts and culture organizations across the island, and uniting the voices of these diverse institutions with the goal of facilitating strategic collaborations and innovative programming as we look to restart and rebuild the sector;
4. Archive: We will create an evolving, historical record of the COVID19 crisis and its impact on our region's creative sector.
New and additional data will allow us to analyze the trends of the crisis for the creative sector and to better understand the needs of organziations and professionals in the short and long term in order to make a plan to restart and recover.
Thank you for your time and cooperation, your best estimates are fine.
