Your chance to shape the recovery in heritage, arts and culture

You are invited to take part in vital University of Sheffield research into how the lockdown in heritage, arts and culture has affected you.

Your participation will help to lobby for much-needed support for people’s wellbeing, communities, and the culture, arts and heritage sector, following the devastating effects of this pandemic. It is Sheffield’s chance to be heard nationally.

You can play your part by visiting the survey here. If you are part of a group that may be interested, please forward this invitation to them.

The inclusion of heritage in this survey is the outcome of collaboration between JUHS and the University of Sheffield. Please join in and make the most of this opportunity!

This research will cover the impact of COVID-19 on the culture, arts and heritage ecology in Sheffield, especially venues, audiences and participants, and freelancers. Lockdown has been catastrophic for Sheffield’s cultural ecology – this project will document that impact, and inform policy to help Sheffield get back on its feet.

This grant is being funded by UK Research and Innovation through the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of their response funding for ideas that address COVID-19.
