Survey

Roundtable on Funding Structures
_____________________

How happy are you with existing funding structures in the arts and culture sector?


What is this survey about

We want to address structural challenges in the arts and culture funding.
This is not about moaning about how bad things are, but rather about opening the dialogue with funders and discussing future perspectives. Many private and public funding bodies are currently re-thinking their ways of supporting civil and artistic initiatives and projects. This seems to be the right time to gather your experiences and best practice examples.
So, please take approx. 10 minutes to answer the questions below. Your input will be hugely appreciated!

If you want to deepen the conversation on funding structures, join the Round Table (please see further info at the end of the survey).
