Collusion survey explores creative use of digital technologies in the East of England08 January 2020

TAKE PART NOW // Deadline for responses – 5pm on Tues 31 March 2020

Today Collusion launches a short survey designed to collect evidence of the demands and needs of the arts and creative sector in the East of England in relation to creative use of digital technologies. This could be as part of creative practice and/or to distribute work.


We are keen to hear from anyone who creates and produces creative projects who is based in the East of England (Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, Essex inc Southend & Thurrock, Hertfordshire, Norfolk & Suffolk). We’d like input from all types of artists/creatives – all artforms, all levels of experience, individuals, companies, larger arts organisations, creatives who maybe don’t identify as artists but who are working in this field, museums, libraries, higher education institutions, local authority run arts projects, CPPs, etc etc.

The survey is part of a unique pilot project for the East of England, working with Arts Council England’s South East team that seeks to:

  • stimulate an increase in the number of applications for project funding that involve digital technologies
  • facilitate creative exchange, collaboration and unlock access to resources in the region (equipment, facilities, expertise) that can help to increase the capacity of the sector to engage with digital technologies.

We will be looking at the results of this survey alongside the more extensive Digital Culture 2019 national survey led by MTM and commissioned by Arts Council England which is due to be published very soon.

This survey should take 5 -15 minutes to complete, depending on the amount of free text you provide, and the deadline for responses by TUES 31 MARCH 2020 at 5pm. If you would like to contact Collusion with any further information or with any questions, email
