WHAT IS THE 24 HOUR CULTURE SURVEY?

Every day, we all enjoy arts and culture in many ways, and sometimes without even realising. Here's your chance to play a part in a major survey, which will take a snapshot of what activities people love to do across South East Wales, over any given 24hour period.  We've selected October 21st - 22nd, so please CLICK HERE and complete our short survey.  You can sign up, follow us on Twitter or see our Facebook page.

1) Tell us what you did...

Did you read a new or favourite book? Watch a great film? Attend a dance class? Make something with art materials? Play video games or write poetry? Sing in a band or listen to the radio?

...maybe all of the above, or something completely different!


2)…across 24 hours...

Click here in the days following noon Friday October 21st - Noon Saturday October 22nd for the live link to the survey.


3)…in South East Wales.

Share what activities you enjoy...and why.

And remember, arts and culture is EVERYWHERE...from an operatic performance at the theatre, to rock music at a festival. From taking photographs of nature on your phone, to eyeing paintings at a museum.

WHAT'S ON

Arts and culture might take place in your own home (do you sing, write, read there?) 

Events and activities right across the community are available to take part in.  Here are a small selection of them taking place in South East Wales during 21st and 22nd October 2016 that might inspire you…

Please get in touch with us via the contact form below if you have an event or activity that you are hosting and would like featured.

MORE ABOUT THE SURVEY

The short questionnaire went live on this site from NOON on October 21st 2016 and asks anyone undertaking any form of cultural activity over that next 24 hours in South East Wales to tell us about it, anonymously. The what, where and why, and especially about the impact and value that activity has on anyone's day, or wider life.

So, if you're 16+ and live in, or engage in cultural activity based in any of the ten local authorities below, from NOON on Friday October 21st to NOON Saturday October 22nd, please complete our survey just after.  The survey results will be analysed by Arts Council of Wales.

As well as some numerical data to paint a picture, it is the story-rich responses that are important to us. Our objective is not an academic research exercise, but to collect narratives about what culture and arts mean to people right across the community.

Headline findings and a final report will be released in due course, available for everyone to use.
