Artist Survey

Thank you to those who took the first ever Annual Artist Survey!

The 2017 survey results can be found at the link below.

Please note: These results are not meant to represent all artists in the Omaha metro. We received over 100 responses in 3 weeks (which is awesome for the first one!) but we know we have work to do reaching artists of different disciplines, ages, races, identities, etc. That's where we can use your help! When the next survey goes live in the Summer of 2018, please share with your own networks. More data can only bring more insight. You may also notice that for some of the questions the percentages add up to more than 100%. That is because respondents were able to choose more than one answer for these questions. (We are not data professionals... if you have any questions about the survey results, don't hesitate to reach out!)

How are we using the data?

  • To inform the design of programs like Working Artist Wednesdays and Artist Grants
  • To evaluate if current programs and activities are meeting the needs of artists right NOW
  • To advocate for things like W.A.G.E. standards
  • To educate patrons on the importance of buying local

The more data the better! Artists: the 2018 Annual Artist Survey will be released in Summer 2018. OCI works to serve artists of all disciplines, but we need to know what you need! Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook so you won't miss the survey announcement.
