WHAT IS (SPAN)?

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 : ENGAGING PUBLICS/PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT

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 New Zealand!!

We are thrilled to have your participation in the (SPAN) TOGETHER SURVEY 2014 on the occasion of the ENGAGING PUBLICS/PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT Symposium, co-organised by Auckland Art Gallery and AUT University School of Art and Design.

 

Your feedback is crucial in developing a report that is distinct in that it will be generated with artists and culture workers, not just about us. 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, and the tools and methodologies you employ. 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.

 

Your answers will be completely anonymous and combined with others' responses.

 

The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Responses will be collected for one week -- through Sunday 21 September 2014.
