In DeuS we have launched a set of four surveys to help us understand the current needs of the cultural and creative industries.

We are keen to hear from our stakeholders to gain insights and an in-depth understanding of needs, challenges, barriers and innovative solutions in place across the cultural and creative sector.

The information we get from the study will go towards creating an optimised training programme and resources for the benefit of cultural and creative industries across Europe.

You are invited to offer feedback and opinions on a series of relevant themes in the surveys below. Feel free to share in your network to help us achieve some great results.

The Four Surveys

Survey 1

If you are a freelancer, sole-trader, or micro-enterprise working within the Creative and Cultural Industries, we’d love to hear from you.

Survey 2

If you own, direct or manage an enterprise within the Creative and Cultural Industries, we invite you to share your thoughts with us.

Survey 3

If you work in professions allied to the Creative and Cultural Industries, for example as advocacy bodies and labour market representatives; regulatory and public authorities; artist associations; creative clusters, funding bodies; research organisations; Cities of Culture etc. we would be grateful for your input.

Survey 4

If you work within education and training (formal and informal) within the Creative and Cultural Industries domain, we’re very keen to capture your thoughts.
