2021 Affiliate Survey Report
In 2021, we conducted our third annual Affiliate survey. This year, we also asked about how groups have been doing through the pandemic, what kind of data they collect from their attendees, any cultural equity work they’ve taken on, and more. 63% of Affiliates responded—the most since the survey began in 2019.
2020 Affiliate Survey Report
In 2020, we conducted another Affiliate survey to learn even more about the work that Affiliates are doing and how we can best support them. We were thrilled that 62% of Affiliates responded – an incredible response rate! We learned much and have been using the survey findings to direct our decisions and actions.
2019 Affiliate Survey Report
In 2019, CDSS conducted its first survey of Affiliates in over a decade. Our goal was to develop a strong base knowledge of our Affiliate community so that we could better support our network of organizations throughout North America and beyond.
In particular, we wanted to learn:
- More about our Affiliates and the work they are doing.
- What Affiliates like about the services we provide and how we can improve.
- What value Affiliates see in traditional participatory arts and what advocacy work can be done to support our shared traditions.
