I’m blowing the cobwebs off the blog on this Leap Day to pass a request from Opera America and the Mellon Foundation. They’re conducting an important survey and would love to hear from you if you are a professional performing artist currently working and living in the U.S. See below for complete info.
(Lots more good blogginess is coming your way this week, as we announce our 2016 season on Thursday. Stay tuned!)
Are you able to make a living through your artistic practice? Do you have health insurance? Have you enrolled in Obamacare (how’s it going?)? What keeps you up at night?
The Mellon Foundation is conducting a survey to better understand the current state of artists currently working and living in the US. This is your chance to let Mellon know your most pressing needs as it considers the ways in which it might expand its support of the artistic community.
The survey should take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. As some of the questions pertain to income, employment, and health insurance status, you may wish to have this information available when you begin the survey. Please note that any results or findings from the survey will contain only unidentifiable, summary data.
