Culture beyond Covid for visual arts spaces

You may have heard of the 'After the Interval' survey that we ran over lockdown in partnership with Indigo Ltd. It helped several ticketed organisations across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to ask their audiences how they felt about returning to arts events, booking tickets, the impact of social distancing measures, outdoor events and engaging with culture digitally. You can read our findings on our Insights page.

We didn't want other non-ticketed organisations to feel left out so we're now offering 'Culture beyond Covid', a new survey for visual arts spaces so they can learn about their own audiences' feelings about coming back, what they’ve been doing over lockdown and what they’ll feel comfortable doing in the future.

How does it work?

Participating galleries will be given their own survey link which can be distributed through mailing lists and social media channels. They will be able to see the results as they come in and identify differences between their individual audiences and collective average.

This survey will run for three weeks and will close on Monday 28th September.

How to take part?

It is free to take part. If you're interested in getting involved, please email our Client Programme Coordinator Sarah.

'Culture beyond Covid' is supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland's Organisations Emergency Fund.
