Inviting You to A Special Survey about Creativity, Culture & Community During These Challenging Times

The Parrish Art Museum is proud to be part of a major national research study to learn how arts, culture, and creativity fit into people’s lives during this difficult period—and how cultural organizations can become better for you in the future.

We know you get a lot of surveys, and that this one comes at a challenging time for many of us. We’re passing it on to you because it’s genuinely important to our community and our shared future. If you can spare a few minutes to give your views, we’d be very grateful.

This survey is truly for everyone–adults across the U.S., whether or not you’re actively involved with organizations like the Parrish. If you’re reading this email, this invitation is for you!

The questions take about 15 minutes to answer, and they’re about how you’ve been spending your time during the pandemic, what kinds of things you’re doing online, what you’re looking forward to when things get back to “normal,” and how arts or culture organizations can help you, your family, and your community. The survey is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Khmer, and Portuguese, and is being conducted by independent researchers on behalf of nonprofit organizations and foundations around the country.


Please complete the survey by Sunday, April 25 to make sure your voice is heard. As a small token of appreciation, you’ll be entered to win one of twenty-five $100 VISA gift cards. All your responses will be kept strictly anonymous.

Please note: You may receive this survey invitation from more than one organization. If so, please only take the survey once.
