SCAN Covid Impact Survey hits the headlines
As you may be aware, we recently surveyed the visual arts community to find out the impact that Covid-19 is having on you. We gathered evidence on the impacts felt of an immediate loss of work, loss of income, closures and cancellations, in an especially precarious time.
This means your voice is having an impact. Together, we are raising awareness of the outlook for the visual art sector as a result of the pandemic – placing your concerns, experiences and interests at the center of this.
This work is part of our wider plan of action to continue to advocate for our members during this unprecedented and difficult time.
In addition, we have been directly advocating for the needs of the Scottish visual art community with funders and the Scottish Government. We submitted evidence to the Scottish Parliament’s Culture Committee, which heard from Cabinet Secretary Fiona Hyslop last week.
We will be continuing to work hard to ensure that the Scottish visual contemporary arts sector is on the agenda. Remember our firstname.lastname@example.org email address is a good way to share any emerging concerns, as well as getting involved in our regular member meetings.
