This survey is part of a research project looking at creative and performing arts activities across the Barkly region. Our aim is to understand how artistic and creative activities contribute to developing Barkly communities and the region as a whole. Your answers to the survey will help us to get a full picture of arts and creative activity in the Barkly. From there we will be able to better understand how the sector works, create resources to support artists, arts organisations and communities, and make recommendations for how the arts and creativity can grow into the future.
This research has been funded by an Australian Research Council Linkage grant, and is being conducted in partnership between Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, Barkly Regional Arts, Regional Development Australia NT, Batchelor Institute and Southern Cross University.
We consider the ARTS and CREATIVITY very broadly, for example, they may include:
VISUAL ARTS - painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, videography, mixed media
PERFORMING ARTS - music, dance, traditional dance, theatre, live art, circus, cabaret, stand-up comedy, storytelling
CRAFT - textiles, ceramics, leatherwork, needlework, woodwork, jewellery, metalwork, carving
LITERATURE - writing, publishing, print/online journalism, blogging, poetry
MEDIA AND ADVERTISING - radio, television, web development, digital media, software/games development
DESIGN - graphic design, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, fashion design, sign writing
We also consider practices that are both paid and unpaid, professional and amateur, formal and informal; and roles that support the arts and creativity e.g. management, production, technical production, facilitation, training.
If you are involved in any of these arts/creative practices in the Barkly Region (or others we may have missed), we need to hear from you!
The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
