The Covid19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on creative industries in New Zealand. Copyright Licensing New Zealand wants to be able to document the impact on the visual arts sector.
We hope you are doing as well as possible under the extraordinary circumstances that we all find ourselves in at this time. We know of other arts sectors that are working to understand the impact of the pandemic and here at Copyright Licensing New Zealand, we are doing this for the visual arts.
Our aim is to gather information from visual artists and visual arts organisations and provide this to government agencies to make sure that the experiences of those involved in the visual arts are considered.
In order to do this, we have prepared a short survey for all New Zealand visual artists to complete – please also share with others in the visual arts sector – we need as many people and organisations as possible to share their experiences.
The anonymised data will be used to advocate for artists during and after the government’s pandemic response and will be contributed to the creative sector-wide dataset that is being compiled by the Ministry of Culture and Heritage.
Getting as much accurate information as possible is vital so please circulate this survey widely and encourage all visual artists you know to participate if they can. Individual contributions to the survey will be kept private unless you specifically confirm your agreement for it to be shared.
