At the top of the session, we will be joined by Nik Nanos, Chief Data Scientist and Founder of Nanos Research, who will be sharing the latest findings from the Arts Response Tracking Survey (ARTS). This edition of ARTS will provide valuable insights into what precautions are required to make culture goers feel safe, the perceived risk of attending arts and cultural events and obstacles to participation.

This session will also feature a response panel with arts leaders from across the country. Together we will discuss how the current wave of the pandemic is affecting arts and culture organizations, and their response to rapidly changing restrictions and realities.

About the Arts Response Tracking Survey (ARTS):

Business / Arts, the National Arts Centre and Nanos Research have come together to gauge Canadians’ attitudes on returning to indoor and outdoor arts and culture events across Canada. Over 1,000 people were polled through the Arts Response Tracking Survey (ARTS). The results offer valuable insight for arts organizations across the country to help inform re-opening procedures and programming models.

The Arts Response Tracking Survey is undertaken as a partnership with Business / Arts, the National Arts Centre and Nanos Research, with the additional support of David and Christine Armstrong and Irfhan Rawji, patrons from the National Arts Centre Foundation.
