WorkInCulture, working with Nordicity, has introduced the MakingItWork survey—an in-depth look at the experiences of cultural workers, artists and organizations in Ontario’s arts, culture, heritage and library sectors.
MakingItWork is a major research project from WorkInCulture that aims to get to the heart of what it’s really like to work in a creative sector. As part of this project, WorkInCulture has developed a short, online survey aimed at individuals and employers within Ontario’s cultural sectors, including magazine professionals and publishers! The survey is an opportunity to share your thoughts on the challenges and opportunities that you face when dealing with topics like career growth, skills, training, hiring and retention, and diversity and equity.
The survey is available in both English and French, and should take less than 20 minutes to complete. If you’re an Ontario magazine professional, you are welcome to fill out the survey as an individual, or on behalf of your company (if you have an ownership stake, for example).
By participating in MakingItWork and sharing your story, you are helping WorkInCulture collect data that will help build better programming and supports for you and the sector. You will also have the opportunity to enter into a draw to win a pair of tickets to the Creative Works Conference in Toronto on May 10, 2019.
MakingItWork is a major research initiative from WorkInCulture that aims to understand the opportunities and challenges of working in Ontario’s creative sector. It’s for everyone and anyone who works in the arts, culture, heritage and library sector in Ontario. It covers individual artists and cultural workers, non-profit and for-profit employers, freelancers, the self-employed and anyone who is trying to make it in the broader cultural sector.
