The Survey Lab is collaborating with the National Opinion Research Center to carry out the first large scale survey of teaching artists. They are currently in the phase of locating teaching artists to participate in a web survey they expect to field in Spring 2009.
If you are a teaching artist, or if you manage a program that hires teaching artists – you can register for the survey on the site. They will send a link to the survey itself as soon as it “goes live” in your community.
If you are someone who hires teaching artists, you can help the project to develop a more complete list. Contact info available on the site.
