Asheville Area Arts Council asks creators to fill out COVID-19 arts impact surveys

Press release from Asheville Area Arts Council:

This is a CALL TO ACTION! By completing these two surveys you will help us better understand the impact of the pandemic, which will, in turn, support our advocacy efforts at the federal, state, and local levels. Help us, help you!

Asheville Area Arts Relief Fund Survey
We are looking into starting an arts relief fund, but donations are hard to come by right now. Please complete this very short survey to help us determine how we can work together to support our local arts community during this pandemic.
Take the Survey

Americans for the Arts Economic Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Arts and Cultural Sector Survey
This survey is designed to collect information about the financial and human impacts that the spread of the coronavirus has 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.
Take the Survey

Initial results are rolling in and AFTA has created a dashboard that allows access to real-time, filterable information from the survey to help artists and organizations tell your state and local impact story. The dashboard is in beta and will continue to update and improve over the coming weeks, but the data is critical now.
