Stand Up and Be Counted


Help advocate for artists across Massachusetts. Take the Massachusetts By Artists for Artists survey.

A new census will help artists stand up and be counted. This effort, a collaboration between our friends at Artmorpheus and the Massachusetts Artists Leaders Coalition (MALC), is the latest version of an important study from 2009.

The survey is using a broad and inclusive definition of artists working in all disciplines. It encompasses: visual artists, musicians, composers, writers, poets, playwrights, new media artists, film makers, crafts people, actors, singers, performance artists, graphic designers, lighting designers, dancers, choreographers, and the like. The 2017 survey was also expanded to include makers and creative entrepreneurs*.

Only you can ensure that the  dance community is represented in this data! You must be a resident of Massachusetts to complete the survey.

The answers you give will shape government policy going forward so don’t delay!
