The Creative Census gathers evidence to support Cornwall’s Creative Manifesto, and is open to those working in the creative industries in Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly. This includes freelancers, organisations, and businesses of all sizes. If you work part-time or have another job alongside your creative activity, you are also encouraged to fill out the survey.

The Creative Census is the most comprehensive annual research into the creative sector in Cornwall, and the results will be used to inform future Creative Manifestos.

It provides evidence of the importance of rural creative economy and by taking part, you are helping to make the case for funding and investment. You will also help Cornwall Council to understand what support the creative sector really needs. 

Take the Creative Census.


The survey will take 10 -15 minutes to complete and 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. You will only be quoted if you give your permission (at the end of the survey). The survey will close at midday on 12 March 2024.
