Creative workers are a vital part of our region’s vibrancy, but are often undercounted - and underserved - because of the fluid nature of their work life. You can help change that!

Artists and creative workers of New England are invited to: 

  • Answer questions about your jobs, income, and career priorities
  • Be entered into a drawing to win a $25 gift card
  • Count yourself in ... and encourage creatives in your networks to do the same

The survey should take 20-30 minutes to complete, because it is designed to capture the complexity of creative work. Please take this opportunity to convey how much you count. Help advocates, service providers, and other stakeholders ensure that creative workers are better served by employment analysis, program planning, and advocacy strategies.

Analysis of your responses will be included in a report on the whole creative sector in New England that will be released in spring, 2017. Thank you!


The survey closed November 18, 2016. Thank you for your participation!

In partnership with the state arts agencies of the six New England states with support from the Barr Foundation, NEFA seeks input from creative workers (including visual artists, dancers, musicians, designers, craftspeople, architects, digital media creators, culture bearers, makers, and more), working full time or not, on various aspects of their work life, including the type of work, how much time is spent on those activities, and how much of this work makes up their income. The survey includes questions on demographics, education, training, and income, employment status and sector, specifics on creative pursuits, as well as opportunity to cite top resources and needs for advancing a creative career.
