LAFAYETTE, La. — The Acadiana Center for the Arts in Downtown Lafayette is offering a survey to artists, musicians, cultural organizers, and friends of the arts who are struggling with the economic impact of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
According to an email sent out by the AcA, the organization is partnering with the Louisiana Division of the Arts to survey the arts field at-large to gather data on the potential financial impacts of the COVID-19 public health emergency.
They are asking that any organization or individual in the arts field that anticipates losing personal or business income related to COVID-19 to please fill out a brief survey.
They also ask that anyone who knows of someone within the arts field in Louisiana that they feel could be impacted to please forward the survey to them.
According to the AcA, this is a quickly evolving situation and the data will be an important resource to inform them, the state and their national partners of the impact on local artists.
