Take The Survey!

We are asking cultural workers in New Orleans to participate in our Cultural Career Paths study. This study is being conducted by the City of New Orleans’ Office of Cultural Economy to learn more about the career paths of cultural workers in our city. The data from this survey will be used to help us create new policies and programs that respond to cultural workers’ needs and help ensure their success. The survey should take 15-20 minutes of your time to complete. All responses to this questionnaire are completely anonymous, so we will not ask for your name or any personally identifiable information in the survey. Thank you for taking the time to respond – your response is very important to this study!
