Social Practices Art Network (SPAN) is a media resource for individuals, organizations, community groups and institutions that are interested in new genre arts forms and practices. It is meant to serve as a platform for a variety of socially engaged art and design practices.


(SPAN) Together Survey : Unruly Engagements/Cleveland

What Is the Survey About?

(SPAN) TOGETHER is an online survey and report aimed at providing richer quantitative data on how artists and culture workers are choosing to work in an expanded field (aka Socially Engaged Art, Community-Based Art, Public Practices, Participatory Arts, to name a few). In broad terms, this survey invites reflection on:


- the 'shape' and 'scope' of your practice,

- how and where you work,

- who you are working with,

- the primary audience for your work,

- the tools and methodologies you employ, and

- touches on the topic of funding, duration and work/life balance.


A huge thank you to the 560+ individuals that participated. We look forward to hearing about your practices in Cleveland!!

Welcome! On the occasion of the Unruly Engagement conference at Cleveland Institute of Art, we are thrilled to invite your participation in the (SPAN) TOGETHER SURVEY 2014.


Your feedback is crucial in developing a report that is distinct in that it will be generated by artists and culture workers, not just about us. The goal is to collect richer quantitative data to communicate the realities of our practices to funders, institutions and other stakeholders demonstrating an interest in working with socially engaged artists.


We are accepting responses through Saturday November 15, 2014.


Please be assured, your answers will be completely anonymous and combined with others' responses. The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.
