Survey: Has COVID19 changed your visual art enjoyment habits?

Survey press release – June 8, 2020

We want to understand how art enthusiasts have been interacting with visual art and artists during COVID19. This survey, which ran during the month of June, was developed by a group of Vancouver Island arts councils (see next accordion), and will contribute to emerging knowledge about how new, isolation-inspired habits might influence future art audiences and marketplaces.

The survey is part of a two-year pilot project to identify new ways to connect audiences with the visual arts, funded in early March by the Canada Council for the Arts’ Digital Strategy Fund.

Our findings will be made publicly available on this website, in support of the visual arts community’s rebuilding efforts.

Sondage : La COVID-19 a-t-elle modifié de quelque façon le plaisir de la découverte de l'art visuel ?

Communiqué – June 8, 2020

Nous voulons comprendre comment les amateurs d’art ont interagi avec l’art visuel et les artistes au cours de la pandémie. Cette enquête, qui a couru pendant le mois de juin, a été élaborée par un groupe de conseils des arts de l’île de Vancouver (détails dans la prochaine communication), et contribuera aux connaissances émergentes sur la manière dont de nouvelles habitudes inspirées par le confinement pourraient influencer les futurs publics et marchés de l’art.

L’enquête s’inscrit dans un projet pilote de deux ans visant à identifier de nouvelles façons de connecter les publics aux arts visuels, financé début mars par le fonds Stratégie numérique du Conseil des Arts du Canada.

Nos conclusions seront rendues publiques sur ce site Web afin de soutenir les efforts de reprise de la communauté des arts visuels.

Pilot project: two-year Canada Council Grant (Mar 2020 to Dec 2021)

In March 2020, we received a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Strategy fund to continue our explorations of new ways to connect art lovers with art. We’re now embarking on a two-year pilot project, with the goal of building an app/digital platform that embeds visual art into every day life, and expands opportunities for audiences to connect with art and artist.
