Are you a creative freelancer living or working in Coventry and Warwickshire? We want to better understand how we can support you and would be grateful if you could spend 10 minutes telling us by completing a short survey:

Are there any risks associated with taking part?

We do not foresee a risk of significant harm involved with your participation. However, as with any opportunity to reflect on ourselves, answering these questions may bring up some uncomfortable emotions. You can stop participating at any time.

At the end of the survey, there are details of national organisations who are able to offer support if any negative emotions are triggered by involvement with this survey.

About the Survey

The Coventry and Warwickshire Creative Freelancers survey was developed by Warwick District Creative Compact’s Freelancer Support Workstream Members. It was informed by a recent survey commissioned by The Midlands Dance Producing Collective (TMDPC), funded by Arts Council England, and produced and managed by Earthen Lamp. The original study was developed in response to the ongoing risk to freelance practice, careers and livelihoods, and the wider risk this poses to both the diversity and sustainability (entry points) of the entire dance ecosystem. The survey was also informed by a body of work developed by Sarah Brewster and Amy Dalton-Hardy as part of their Freelancer Support session at Warwick District Council's Spark event in 2021.
