Survey: Help NYSCA Understand Public Participation in the Arts
Online survey aims to parse New Yorkers’ cultural engagement
More, from The New York Times’ ArtsBeat:
Did you attend “Così Fan Tutte” at the Metropolitan Opera or an elementary-school performance of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”? Browse a museum store or watch a movie? The New York State Council on the Arts wants to know.
This week the agency began an anonymous online survey about people’s participation in the arts to help shape its priorities for the next three years, Lisa Robb, the council’s executive director, explained.
“We need the public’s help,” Ms. Robb said. “We’re doing our planning for 2015 to 2018 and we have not surveyed the public in over five years.” The survey asks about watching a movie and visiting a “creative retail shop,” clicking a thumbs-up to like a cultural activity online, or stopping to listen to a busker in the subway, but not about television or radio.
