Creative Wales, as part of Welsh Government, wants to know your opinion on how to shape their communication strategy so they can extend their reach and plan their activities moving forward.

Following a recent research session we participated in looking at Creative Wales’s interaction with the music industry in Wales, they are looking to get individual feedback from a wider audience through a survey.

Creative Wales are engaging in this research to look into their current communication strategy to help highlight any gaps that exist and shape their plans moving forward.

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete, and can be accessed in both English and Welsh.
