The Ongoing Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on the Arts and Cultural Sector: A 5-Minute Survey from Americans for the Arts


The Americans for the Arts survey is designed to collect information about the financial and human impacts that the spread of the coronavirus have had on arts and cultural organizations and artists since the first coronavirus patient in the United States was confirmed on January 20, 2020.

This updated survey collects basic information about the participating organizations and artists. In addition, it gathers information about challenges facing the Arts sector in relief, recovery, and reopening processes. This data can then be parsed by specific geographic regions, artistic disciplines, and budget categories. Non-profit organizations, for-profit businesses, and individuals working within the creative sector in any discipline, part-time or full-time, are encouraged to complete the survey.
