URGENT Survey for Freelancers

Freelancers Make Theatre Work is working with officials at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport to build an evidence base on the impact of the Omicron variant on freelancers across the Performing Arts sector in England (Devolved Administrations are responsible for arts policy in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).

Evidence building is looking at a range of sources, including organisations across the performing arts sector. It is vital to build a snapshot of the live situation from freelancers themselves.

Therefore, we are asking if you could fill in this questionnaire. We recognise that you may be exhausted, so it has been designed to take less than 5 minutes of your time. Your input will directly contribute to the growing data available that truly recognises the freelance workforce.

This is not a government survey, but as they want to understand the scale of the challenge we’re facing now, it's vital we seize the chance to make the strongest possible case.

The deadline for completing the questionnaire is Midnight 30 Dec. We appreciate this is a quick turnaround at a time when many hoped to be resting but we are in a rapidly changing situation and the survey is designed to be quick to respond to. We believe the information shared will actively contribute to defining the reality of the challenges freelancers are currently facing.
