To All Involved in our Arts, Cultural and Creative Communities:
We need to hear from you!
Individual artists, creatives, craftspeople, and cultural practitioners. Representatives of arts and cultural groups and organizations and creative and arts-friendly businesses located in the Elmira/Corning and Southern Finger Lakes region. See our sidebar for examples of who we hope to hear from.
WHY AND WHAT?
Community and civic leaders are exploring the potential for new, affordable space (“the project”) to be built in the Elmira/Corning area. Artspace Projects, a national nonprofit developer with a mission to create affordable art spaces, has been asked to assist. Two surveys will be used to gather information regarding interest in a variety of affordable space options. This information can be used to attract funders and partners and inform planning, development, and financial modeling. The project concept has not yet been determined, but may include combined live/work space, private studios and workspaces, and private or shared spaces that can be rented on a long-term, short-term and/or occasional basis. A single mixed-use facility is a potential outcome and the primary focus of this study, but survey results could inspire a variety of new independent space opportunities. We need your input to determine if there is sufficient demand to warrant new space, and if so, the nature of that space (types of space, amenities, design features and affordability).
HOW CAN I HELP?
Click the links below to take the survey(s)! Each survey takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and the surveys may be taken at different times. Surveys are best viewed on a computer, laptop, or other device with a large screen. At the end of the surveys, be sure to click on the "Submit" button so your responses are recorded.
WHICH SURVEY SHOULD I TAKE?
Individuals with personal space needs should take the Survey of Individual Artists and Creatives. Leaders of arts and cultural organizations and groups and creative and arts-friendly businesses should take the Survey of Organizations and Businesses. If you have individual space needs AND also oversee or operate a group, organization or business that has its own unique space needs, please take Both surveys.
Take the survey!
These surveys are for research purposes only. Your private information will not be shared with other organizations. If you complete both surveys, your responses to each survey will be examined separately and the responses will not be connected in any way.
Thank you for participating! Please forward this survey link to your friends and colleagues, and share it in your social networks. A large response will provide the most useful information!
