The Alliance for California Traditional Arts invites you to participate in Leveraging Investments in Creativity’s (LINC’s) current survey, Artists and the Economic Recession, which will provide important data about the economic recessions’ impact on artists. Even if you’ve taken other surveys this year (and there have been many!), please take the time to participate.  ACTA is working with LINC to tabulate comparative data that will reveal changes between ACTA and the Fund for Folk Culture's February 2009 survey data and the current LINC results. Thank you!

Is the recession over for you, or still going strong? As an artist, the conditions you face in this current economic climate should be heard and addressed.

The Artists and the Economic Recession Survey invites you to share your experience. It is being conducted by Leveraging Investments in Creativity (LINC), a ten-year national initiative to improve conditions for artists, and supervised by Princeton Survey Research Associates International.  Completing the survey takes about 15 minutes and is offered in both English and Spanish.

There is strength in numbers.

LINC has been working with organizations around the country to distribute the survey… but we want to make sure we reach the widest range of artist voices possible, especially artists who may not be part of formal organizational networks.  Reaching as many artists as possible improves the quality of this important research, and better equips everyone who advocates for artists and the arts.

In addition to completing the survey yourself, could you forward this to every artist you know?
