Research Questionnaires - request for assistance
The International Federation of Arts Councils and Cultural Agencies (IFACCA) and the National Council for Culture and the Arts, Chile (CNCA) will host the 6th World Summit on Arts and Culture on 13 – 16 January 2014 in Santiago, Chile.
Within the overarching theme of Creative Times: new models for cultural development, the 6th World Summit will focus on how globalisation, shifts in social and economic development, and new forms of communication are generating an array of challenges and opportunities within the cultural field, and on how this is impacting on the development of our societies and nations.
In order to prepare background reading materials for World Summit delegates, IFACCA and the CNCA are gathering information on this theme. There are two complementary parts to this information-gathering process:
a) Identification by IFACCA of the main strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT and other key challenges) facing the cultural sector and government agencies; and
b) Identification by CNCA of new models of cultural development that respond to current crises and/or significant social transformations occurring globally together with the analysis of the understanding of different concepts in different geographical areas.
The CNCA questionnaire will be used to prepare the Discussion Paper to be prepared for the World Summit. The IFACCA questionnaire will also inform the Summit discussion as well as related IFACCA member activities such as the CEO Leadership seminar.
In order to collect this information, IFACCA and CNCA have developed the following questionnaires. The questionnaires are being sent to public arts funding agencies and cultural policy experts and other members of IFACCA’s and CNCA’s networks.
Please see below for links to the two questionnaires:
1. IFACCA questionnaire: International Overview of Issues for Public Arts Administration
2. CNCA questionnaire: Discussion Paper Survey. In answering this survey, please refer to this glossary: Glossary of Terms
We strongly encourage respondents to reply to both questionnaires. The questionnaires focus on different issues but are complementary and reflect the overall themes of the 6th World Summit on Arts and Culture.
All questionnaire respondents will have the opportunity to review and comment on the draft report before it is publicly distributed.
Please note that the deadline for responses is Tuesday 4 June 2013.
Thank you and we look forward to receiving your input.
