Cornwall Council has released a new survey for everyone working in the creative industry. This includes freelancers, not-for-profit organisations and other businesses based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. If you work part-time or have another job alongside your creative activity, you are also encouraged to fill out this survey.

They released the following statement on their aims:

“We want Cornwall to be the leading rural creative economy! We believe that everyone working in the Creative Industries in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly plays a part in achieving this. To continue strengthening and growing this sector we need to make sure that we understand it well. You can help by completing this quick Niveryans Awenek/Creative Census survey.”

The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

The information you provide will be processed by officers working in Cornwall Council's Culture Team and Economy and Skills Service. Individual responses will not be passed on to any third parties, and you will not be quoted unless you give permission (at the end of the survey). This survey will close on 1 March 2023.
