Arts Survey

2018 NWT Arts Strategy Survey

Have your say to help shape the GNWT’s priorities for supporting the arts over the next decade.

Your answers will help the Government of the Northwest Territories develop a new Arts Strategy. The survey should only take about 20-30 minutes. By completing it, you could win an iPad Mini when the survey closes!

In this survey, we are seeking input from members of the general public, artists across all disciplines arts organizations, and community groups – either based in the NWT or working in the NWT. If you are a part of any of these groups, this survey is for you.

Everything you share will be kept confidential by Nordicity. All of your responses to this survey will remain confidential and only released in aggregate to the Government of the Northwest Territories (i.e. never on an individual basis).

If you have any questions about this survey or the project, please contact Victoria Lean of Nordicity at
