Artist Survey

Take this short survey and help OCI to make it easier to be a working artist in Omaha.

We know.... another survey. But we promise that with your help we can make this thriving arts community even stronger!

Here at OCI, we are driven to make the Omaha metro a place where artists want to live. Omaha has a lot going for it in terms of the arts community, but there are things we can improve. We have started to make some changes to our programs to better serve local artists, but we have a limited sample. If our goal is to be a resource for all artists, we need to hear from more artists about what opportunities and resources they need to succeed. This anonymous survey is a step towards doing just that. By participating in this study and telling us what you need, you’ll be helping OCI and ultimately our community improve and better support local artists.

What we want to learn: 

  • Current climate for Omaha artists
  • What artists need to succeed
  • How OCI can best support artists in Omaha

Our goals:

  • To make informed decisions about programming and activities
  • Be responsive to artists’ needs
  • Use data to better advocate for Omaha artists

Before you take the survey, we want to make sure you understand that we take matters of privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Your answers are anonymous and all individual records will be kept private. Data will be stored securely and only OCI staff will have access to the records. Our goal is to get a picture of the artist community as a whole. Aggregate data may be used in marketing materials. We will not use any individual data in any written materials. Participation in this study is voluntary. Your decision whether or not to participate will not affect your current or future relations with the Omaha Creative Institute. If you have any questions, we welcome your call or email at 402-996-1092 or
