THE ECONOMIC AND SOCIOPOLITICAL SITUATION OF THE INDEPENDENT PERFORMING ARTS IN EUROPE
This questionnaire aims to collect data to examine the economic and sociopolitical situation of independent performing arts in Europe. The data is used to map the organizational field of independent performing arts and to provide a direct Europe-wide overview that creates a basis for comparison concerning distinct national characteristics of independent performing arts infrastructures, social status of artists, funding systems and the role of advocacy organizations.
The gathering and presentation of data will provide information about similarities and differences of Europe’s independent performing arts communities and all results will be accessible to interest groups and advocacy organizations, which, in turn, can use them to engage in advocacy for better working conditions and the further advancement concerning the status of the artist in their respective countries.
