MOME Business Impact Survey

Americans For the Arts Impact Survey

MOME also highlighted this survey as one to participate in. The survey will capture a broad spectrum of data and stories that will demonstrate how the arts and culture workers are managing through the crisis as well as the effect of the outbreak on operations through cancelled events, lost wages, and additional expenses. While the survey is national in reach, in is anticipated by MOME that the data can be parsed by specific geographic regions, artistic disciplines, and budget categories, to enable us to see the impact on New York specifically.
