A survey for marginalised writers, artists and creative people

creative futureCreative Future –  an inspirational organisation based in south-east England but with a national reach – is researching the barriers that marginalised and disabled artists face in the UK when accessing arts opportunities.

What does marginalised mean?

The organisations that help to fund Creative Futures define marginalised as those who feel they lack opportunities because of:
mental health issues
physical or learning disabilities
homeless people
substance misusers
offenders & ex-offenders
refugees
long term unemployed
the elderly
travellers
carers
people from LGB&T and BME communities.

If you complete this survey before the 11th September 2015 https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/barrierstoaccess  you also have a chance to win £60.

The survey has 24 questions mostly tick boxes and can be completed in around 15 minutes. The research will help organisations engage more people who are marginalised and disabled.

Please share this post as widely as you can – the more information Creative Future can gather the better. You can find out more about Creative Future HERE

    Did the survey. Kind of long.

    As a writer and talk show host, I was a little confused by the use of the word “artist” and emphasis on visual arts, but managed.

    Also, I’m in the USA.

    Best to you all,

    Sally

      Creative Future is involved in the visual arts as well as creative writing. I’m sure they will appreciate your interest.

    Completed, thanks Bridget. My final comment was, “You’re only marginalised if that’s how you see yourself”. Vx
