About this survey.

This survey has been initiated by Migrants in Culture, a network of migrant cultural workers and allies organising against the UK Home Office Hostile Environment Policy. This survey concerns the impact of the Hostile Environment on the cultural sector.

Who is this survey for?
This survey is aimed at ALL those working and studying in the cultural sector, including subsidised cultural production, commercial galleries and theatre, grass-roots and community-led activities, and cultural programmes in Higher Education. You do not need to have any existing knowledge of the Hostile Environment.

Why is this survey needed?
Migrants in Culture are concerned about how the Hostile Environment Policy impacts migrants, non-white citizens, as well as forces white citizens to police everyday workplaces and exchanges. This survey aims to gather the observations and experiences of all cultural workers to map the impact of the Hostile Environment Policy on the cultural sector.

What will this survey be used for?
Key findings will be published and inform how Migrants in Culture can take action to hold our sector accountable to migrants, non-white citizens and others being impacted by the Hostile Environment Policy. We aim to work with all allies to ensure that we lead cultures that create welcoming, not hostile environments.

What do you mean by ‘migrant’?
There is no legal definition of ‘migrant’ in UK law. For the purposes of this survey, Migrants in Culture is examining the impact of the Hostile Environment Policy on cultural workers at the intersection between migration and race. In this survey, migrant pertains to the following statuses: non-EU nationals; EU nationals; asylum seekers; refugees; undocumented; and those who have naturalised since 2010 (the launch of the UK Home Office Hostile Environment Policy). 

About the survey:
This survey will take 10-12 minutes to complete and contains 10- 25 questions.

The survey contains four sections pertaining to: your status, your experiences of the Hostile Environment policy, and current practices in the cultural sector.  

As part of the survey, we will be collecting data on your current legal status and ethnic identification. The data will not be shared with any third parties and will be anonymised. For more information please see our Data Protection information.

Data Protection Information:
This project is led by Migrants in Culture.

We are collecting special category data on a lawful basis in order to better understand the make-up of migrants and affected cultural workers. You will be asked to give your consent for us to collect, store and process your personal data.

All data will be anonymised and held in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act. Data will be held for one year and thereafter permanently deleted.

The survey will be anonymous, in that participants will not be asked to state their names.

The distribution of the survey is staggered to ensure appropriate data samples and data gathering, and to minimise identification. Only the core project team of four people has access to the data.

We will treat the data gathered confidentially and comply with GDPR. We will store the data on a single server location only accessed by the core project team.

We will release an initial-findings report to the public within six month of collecting the data.

In the report, we will anonymise quantitative data by using the following techniques as appropriate according to the results: aggregate or reduce precision, restrict upper and lower ranges, anonymise relational data. We will also pseudonymise respondents’ qualitative data by attributing direct quotes to made-up names and we will anonymise any sensitive data in these quotes.

Data will not be shared with any third parties. Access to data during the research period will be controlled by password protection and encryption and will only be accessible to the core project team.
