Create, Ireland's national development agency for collaborative arts and Dublin City Art's Office are inviting you to take part in a survey about the professional development needs of artists who work collaboratively.

Your response will inform important research being undertaken by Create in partnership with Tate Liverpool (UK), Live Art Development Agency (UK), m-cult (Finland) and Dublin City Arts Office as part of our exploration of a European Learning Network for artists who work collaboratively.

Create's vision is to lead the development of collaborative arts practice in Ireland, creating opportunities for exchange and interaction that benefit a wide constituency of artists, arts professionals, sectoral partners and communities. Create and our European Learning Network partners are committed to exploring the evolving professional development needs of artists located within this exciting field of contemporary arts practice. Your participation in this survey will greatly assist our work.

If you are an artist in any artform who works regularly or even occasionally in a collaborative and/or socially engaged context, we would love to hear from you. Also, if you are an organisation in touch with/ working regularly with artists please circulate this survey. 

The information gathered will help us to develop a mutual understanding around the range of contemporary collaborative practice; gain an understanding of artists' on-going learning and development needs within the field of collaborative practice; and work towards an international language which describes the complexity and breadth of those practices.

If you want a copy of the results, please include your email address in the space provided. The questionnaire will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
