Calgary Arts Professionals Survey

The first Calgary Arts Professionals Survey was released in 2014 and provided a series of insights into the lives of artists, arts administrators, and arts educators. The 2017 survey again asks arts professionals about issues related to their career path, access to space and resources, health and wellness, housing, and perceptions of Calgary. The 10 to 15 minute anonymous survey provides critical information about those working in the arts sector. Survey results will be used to help inform future arts development activities in Calgary.
