Mobility survey for artists: Barometer to shed light on the mobility of art and artists and related needs.

News   26.9.2018  

The theme of this year’s Arts and Culture Barometer is the mobility of artists and art. For the first time, the target group this year is the entire artist community in Finland. The survey aims to find out how artists perceive mobility and what it means in terms of their work as artists and the arts in general.

The survey will gather the opinions of those working in the fields of the arts, hear about their needs in terms of mobility, and to weigh their views and values in relation to art and artistic work.

The online survey is open, and artists in all fields of the arts are invited to respond. The deadline for doing so is Monday 15 October 2018.

A prize drawing for a €500 “Superlahjakortti” gift certificate will be held among respondents to the survey.
