2019 Artist Trust Annual Artist Survey


Artist Trust’s mission is to support and encourage artists working in all disciplines to enrich community life throughout Washington State.

Our Annual Artist Survey helps us build responsive programming and create new opportunities to support, connect, and advocate for artists. The results of this survey allow us to better understand the artists we serve and share information from responding artists with other artist-serving organizations. With greater knowledge about the needs of artists around the state, we can all work to provide better support and further elevate the voices of Washington’s artists.
