Newcomer and Ethnocultural Artists Needs Assessment Survey

Creative Manitoba’s Newcomer and Ethnocultural Artists Needs Assessment Survey – 2018

Creative Manitoba is currently conducting research to understand the needs, opportunities and challenges experienced by artists from around the world who have settled in Manitoba. We are seeking their input and asking these artists to complete a short survey and tell us about their experiences. The survey findings will help us design or modify programs, deliver professional development and mentorship opportunities for artists new to Canada, age 16 years and older.

Creative Manitoba strengthens, represents and connects Manitoba’s arts and creative industries. Our entrepreneurship training and mentorship opportunities teach artists how to sustain themselves creatively and financially. Our arts specific management training increases productivity and profitability in arts and cultural organizations.

We need your help to get this survey online link or hard copy to aspiring or professional newcomer or ethnocultural artists living in Manitoba. The survey should only take 2-5 minutes to complete. We have consulted EAL professionals to try to ensure the language is accessible for EAL survey participants.

The survey will be open until OCTOBER 1, 2018 leaving some time to work together with and through our networks and communities to spread the word about the survey.

The more people who respond to this survey, the more detailed and accurate our findings will be. As such, we invite you to share this link with other Newcomer and ethno-cultural artists and any organizations in which they may be involved and to encourage their participation.

A summary report of this first phase of research / outreach will be developed in September and shared with any interested groups and survey participants, the highlights will be posted on Creative Manitoba website and shared with a variety of arts funders and service organizations.
