As COVID-19 upends daily life for art workers, we created a questionnaire to help quickly gauge the economic impact of this crisis. Unlike other industries (e.g. restaurants/bars) that have well-defined labor statistics, existing information on art labor is scarce.
We need better information to evaluate COVID-related policy proposals, especially because the art world relies on freelance labor at small institutions who may be exempt from paid leave requirements. For this reason we will make our findings public as soon as possible.
This questionnaire has been put together by Art Handler magazine. Your personal information will remain anonymous. [www.art-handler.com
