Have you lost staff and more due to the COVID-19 pandemic?
I Lost My Gig Canada, a project of ArtsPond in collaboration with Hill Strategies Research and community partners, is pleased to announce the release of the 2nd COVID-19 Impact Survey for Organizations.
Open until February 28, 2021, the goals of this survey are to help better understand the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Canadian arts and culture industry, to share stories on how diverse arts and culture organizations are responding, and to identify what is needed to help the sector continue to thrive in an uncertain future.
Small to medium enterprises, and large organizations, companies, and collectives from the arts, culture, heritage, tourism, and creative industries from across Canada are invited to respond to this short, 10-minute, bilingual survey which includes options for storytelling or multiple choice questions.
COVID-19 Impact Survey for Organizations builds upon the lessons and insights of I Lost My Gig Canada’s First COVID-19 Impact Survey for Individuals which launched in March 2020.
With more than $20 million in lost income reported to date by 800+ respondents (estimated $1.5 to $1.9 billion economic impact Canada-wide), the First COVID-19 Impact survey has helped capture personal stories and economic impacts of the pandemic on individual gig economy workers in arts, culture, heritage, tourism, and creative industries from all 13 provinces and territories across Canada.
The launch of COVID-19 Impact Survey for Organizations will help provide a more detailed understanding of the impacts of the pandemic on the whole arts and culture industry in Canada.
