Dear Parenting Artists and friends
It is one year since The Mothership Project launched its publication Satellite Findings that presented the results from our parenting artist survey and parenting artist residency in collaboration with Cow House Studios. As parenting artists we have keenly felt the challenges that the current coronavirus crisis has presented, particularly in relation to practice and childcare.
Following on from our past parenting artist survey, we ask that you take part in The Mothership Covid Questionnaire to help us to take the temperature of what it is currently like for practicing artists with children. The Arts Council’s recent survey into the current conditions for artists asked no questions around the particular challenges faced by artists with children. We hope that this questionnaire will in some way fill that gap.
You can find it here – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GJRQ8NH
It is a short questionnaire of 10 questions and should take between 4 -10 minutes to complete depending on how much you would like to share with us. All information will be gathered anonymously and we hope to share our findings with the wider community to make visible the particular challenges faced by parenting artists today.
The survey closes on May 18th (when other things start to open up a bit more!)
Thanks and solidarity,
The Mothership Project
