Please respond to this national arts and culture sector impact survey
Americans for the Arts has developed this 5-minute survey to collect information about the financial and human impacts that the spread of the coronavirus have had on arts and cultural organizations. The survey also collects basic information about the participating organizations so that the data can be parsed by specific geographic regions, artistic disciplines, and budget categories.
