EPAD seeks to asses impact of Covid Lockdown

EPAD – Edinburgh Performing Arts Development – is inviting everyone who works professionally in the performing arts in Edinburgh to contribute to its Covid impact survey.

The survey, subtitled “Informing the future of Edinburgh’s performing arts sector”, is open to everyone who works in the performing arts in Edinburgh, at what ever capacity and at what ever level. It will be open to responses until Friday 19 June 2020.

Edinburgh Performing Arts Development is seeking help to contribute to the thinking that informs the future of our city’s cultural provision.

EPAD is a support programme for professional independent performing arts companies and artists based in Edinburgh set up by Lucy Mason and Nick Bone in 2015. It supports Edinburgh’s professional performing arts sector to develop, share resources and build better connections.

Speaking of the new survey, Mason said: “EPAD’s network is unique in spanning the breadth of Edinburgh’s performing arts sector.

a cross-section of concerns

“We would like to maximise our connections across this community to capture a cross-section of concerns and priorities to inform our response to the City of Edinburgh Council as they plan for the future of the city’s cultural provision.

“We are keen to hear from the city’s individual artists and producers as well as arts workers in small companies, festivals and large performing arts organisations – including those on furlough.”

The survey is open enough to examine both the opportunities created by the current lockdown situation and to seek to understand what the long-term effect might be on the future of the performing arts in Edinburgh.
