Since 2013, we've been asking the question ("If you had a room full of people willing to listen to you, what would you say?") and engaging with dozens of artists, performers and poetry enthusiasts in our community. We've hosted over 40 open mic sessions, along with other artist showcases, movie screenings, potluck gatherings and collaborative events. With so much behind us, and even more ahead of us, we wanted to take the time out to hear directly from you and what you want to explore and experience through our platform.
The Listening was founded with an idea that the performing arts can change lives for the better, in a manner that was far beyond entertainment. The purpose of this survey is two-fold: (1) to learn more about what you - THE PEOPLE - are actually interested in, when it comes to the performing arts; and (2) what role you believe The Listening plays in the local performing arts scene. Once all the data is received, it will play a major role in our strategic plan for the next five years. It almost goes without saying, but your participation is crucial, as this is a major element in our service to the community.
Please complete as fully and honestly as possible. Your responses will only be viewed by the leadership team of The Listening and WILL NOT be shared publicly (unless you wish to do so).
