Sustainability Survey

Thank you so much to all who have already completed our survey! If you haven’t, we would really appreciate you taking the time to fill it out! You can access the survey by clicking here.



We understand that the external environment for our sector is incredibly difficult and challenging and we, together, need to explore how we can support each other to meet the challenges ahead, both in the short and longer term.  

In order to explore these challenges, and identify potential solutions, TheatreNI has been conducting research into sustainability in the theatre and performing arts sector in Northern Ireland. 

The research, which has included a literature review and consultations to date, has informed the development of this survey. We would be very grateful if you could respond to this survey as fully as possible. Completing the survey should take around twenty minutes of your time.  

This survey asks you to describe the ways in which you work now, and how this might change in the future. It has been designed to be completed by both organisations and individual practitioners.

The data that your responses provide, along with ongoing consultations, will improve our insight into the sector, continue to identify the key issues and challenges you face, as well as highlight potential opportunities and solutions for strengthening our sector. Your answers will be used (anonymously) as part of an overall report to our funders and other stakeholders.

The deadline for completing this survey is Wednesday 26th of April at 5pm. You can access the survey  by clicking here or by copying and pasting this link into your browser: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CTKNKSV

We look forward to receiving your survey responses and continuing to support you in the future.


With best wishes,
