Short Survey: Arts, Equity and Recovery in San Francisco and Bay Area
In summer 2020, Arts for a Better Bay Area (ABBA) and SAFEhouse Arts began producing an online forum to help connect and support artists, and arts and culture workers around issues of recovery, advocacy, cultural equity, and representation. The online event series REBOUND - ARTS Equity & Recovery kicked off in September 2020.
In producing this 3rd event, the Rebound series is being led by a team of local BIPOC arts & culture leaders to guide the event’s focus and planning. The intention of this upcoming event is to center BIPOC and historically excluded communities' needs.
To learn about emerging issues and concerns directly from the community as we reopen, we ask that you take this short survey to help us determine the focus of the next event. We want this event to be representative of our arts & culture communities and be driven by your interest and needs. Please share this survey with your communities (too) - Thank you!
* Looking at recovery for Arts and Culture in the Bay Area, what is in front of you and behind you?
* Looking at the Art and Culture of San Francisco/Bay Area, what does recovery mean to you? What do you feel is needed?
* Answer based on your conversations with your communities, work, and personal relationships.
Please note, the information gathered from this survey will be anonymous unless you give us permission to follow up with you.
