SURVEY: COVID-19’s impact on the creative community and support needed

The Minnesota State Arts Board and Minnesota’s regional arts councils know that people and organizations in our state’s arts and creative sector are being tested and challenged as never before. The physical, emotional, and financial toll that COVID-19 is taking is beyond our ability to measure, at this point.

To help us get a handle on what’s happening and guide our immediate and longer-term responses to COVID-19, we need your input. Please take FIVE MINUTES to complete a very brief and simple survey. We will begin reviewing the information on March 25, so please complete the survey by then.  However, we know that the situation is evolving every day, so we’ll keep the survey live and will continue to review new responses as we receive them.

Please forward this message to anyone else who might want to provide input.

We will be sharing this information with other arts funders, with Minnesota Citizens for the Arts, and others who can use it in their own efforts.  We are all in this together and I know we all want to do whatever we can to support one another.

Take care,

Sue Gens
Executive Director

Minnesota State Arts Board
