Assessing Impact and Resource Needs of the Indian Cultural Sector During COVID-19

The COVID-19 health crisis and the resulting lockdown is creating unprecedented changes in the way we work as cultural professionals. In several cases, artists are unable to meet and create work, projects have slowed down, and events and cultural projects have been cancelled. At ACRI, we are looking to assess the impact of this crisis and the resources you need to overcome the challenges you face.

We’re interested in knowing about the current situation on ground as well as short-term, medium-term, and long-term resources / initiatives / groups / forms of support / ideas / etc. that the sector as well as individuals can benefit from. If you could share your thoughts and be as specific as possible, that will help get things moving more quickly. References, if relevant, will also be very helpful so do add those in with your responses.

All of the information collected is confidential and will only be used by the Art X Company for research purposes. Survey results that are shared will be anonymised before release. This form is not automatically collecting your email address, nor is your name or contact information a mandatory requirement. If you would like to share your contact information with us, we will add you to our mailing list to keep you updated on news and any activity we do around a response to COVID-19 and also our work in capacity building and research in the cultural sector.

Arts and Culture Resources India (ACRI), is a space for knowledge exchange, information sharing, networking, and learning for cultural and creative industry professionals in India and South Asia. Visit the website to learn more about the work that we do and how we’re responding to COVID-19 for and on behalf of the Indian cultural sector.

Finally, please fill in all fields. It would help us gather relevant and accurate data about your status and your needs.

Thank you,
Rashmi & Dipti
