Assessing Community Needs: Creativity and Creative Work

 

As writers, editors, place makers and conversation hosts, Wendy and I have done a lot of work around building and supporting creative community. Taking a break, stepping back, grabbing a cold iced drink on a recent afternoon, I realized I don’t have a good sense at this point of what the people in my community/ies need, of what your goals are, of where you want to go and what might be holding you back.

That won’t do. So, as a project for a class in Leadership, I designed a brief survey to answer these questions and hopefully give us all a glimpse into who we are and where we are at the moment, in our various works. I’ll be taking time this summer to analyze the results and will report back through our newsletter. This is a place to start. These are general questions. It surprises me I honestly don’t know how you’ll answer.

The survey is a quick ten questions and will be open for the remainder of June. Invite your fellow writers, artists and other creative friends (and aren’t we all creative?) to add their voices and join the conversation.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Sarah
