Fiscally Sponsored Artists and Projects Survey


Today, Dance/NYC releases a short, six-minute survey for fiscally sponsored artists and arts projects in New York City. This two-part survey will collect demographic data as well as information about issues that matter to the workforce of fiscally sponsored artists and arts projects. Input will be used to inform cultural planning underway by the City of New York.

If you are a fiscally sponsored artist or project, please complete the survey here yourself and forward this link now to your project staff or colleagues: {}.

This research follows recent studies on the workforce of legally registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts and culture organization led by Ithaka S+R, Dance/NYC, and DataArts, and seeks to reveal the landscape of fiscally sponsored artists and projects to guide policy and fund development and management practice. Findings may be used to drive critical resources and services to fiscally sponsored artists and projects that are currently unavailable.

Collecting and sharing this information is strongly encouraged as a best practice that can make your work and the work of the larger arts field more effective; however, this survey is entirely voluntary. Only Dance/NYC, and the researcher, Webb Management Services, will have access to all individual survey responses. As there is no identifying information in the survey itself, all responses will remain anonymous.

In the interest of capturing the full breadth of your workforce, we would also encourage you to share it with your volunteers and independent contractors, if possible. We ask that you and your colleagues complete the survey here by January 23rd. Your input will determine how we move forward.
