Canada’s performing arts presenting networks have launched an important survey of organizations who present the works of touring artists. This one-of-a-kind, national survey is designed to draw a portrait of the Canadian presenting field and to gain fresh views and opinions of all presenters. It is a central piece of The Value of Presenting study, and likely the largest survey of its kind in Canadian history.
The survey was sent out by personal email invitation from EKOS Research to 1500 organizations who have already been identified by presenting networks and stakeholders.
Organizations who present the works of touring artists, but who have not received this email are also invited to complete the survey at www.ekos.com/presentersurvey-e/.
We encourage all presenting organizations to take the time (20-25 minutes) to complete this important survey, which will allow us to gain a much better understanding of arts presentation and its impacts in our province.
The Value of Presenting: A Study of Arts Presentation in Canada is a large-scale enquiry undertaken by CAPACOA and Canada’s presenting networks to understand and communicate the value and benefits of presenting for Canadians and to raise awareness of the role of the live arts presenter in the arts ecology, in communities, in society. Besides this survey, the study will also rely on literature review, live dialogue sessions and online consultations to define that role with the next 20 years in mind.
