Be counted! Make sure the impact of COVID-19 on the creative sectors is known.
The impacts of the COVID-19 crisis hit the artists and creative businesses first and dramatically. However, there aren’t a lot of ways to make those impacts visible collectively, which is why there are so many surveys going around. These are really important, so we gathered all the current ones here specifically for you, ranging all the way from a specific survey just for live music venues all the way to the national census itself. Please make sure you get counted!
Live Music Venue Survey
Live music venue owners and operators—King County Creative has a COVID-19 economic impact survey specifically for you. We know that our live music venues are critically important to the health of the music community, as well as our nighttime economy and culture. Please fill out this survey by April 18, 2020 and share widely with music venue owners and operators in King County. (We will be aggregating this data for presentation but not disclosing individual venue data.)
