What’s it like to work in the culture sector?
by Patti Broughton and WorkinCulture
If you’ve looked for work in the arts in Ontario, chances are you’ve used WorkInCulture’s popular Job Board. What you may not know is that WorkInCulture’s mission is to support the people who work in the cultural sector through life-long career development and entrepreneurial and business skills training.
One of WorkInCulture’s current projects is MakingItWork, a major research project that’s designed to help us better understand the opportunities and challenges of employment in the creative sector. Working with strategy and policy analysts Nordicity, and with support from the Province of Ontario, WorkInCulture has conducted a series of roundtables and have just launched the MakingItWork survey.
The survey is an in-depth look at what it’s really like to work in the sector. Whether you’re an artist, a worker at a cultural organization, a cultural organization, a library, a museum, or a cultural industry company, they want to hear about opportunities and challenges that you face when dealing with career growth, skills, training, hiring and retention, as well as diversity and equity.

By participating in this survey you are contributing to our shared understanding of the needs and priorities of Ontario’s cultural workforce. This will have a real impact on programming, services and supports available to the sector. The survey is designed to take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Please share it with your friends, colleagues, and networks.
You will also have the chance to enter a draw to win a pair of tickets to the WorkInCulture Creative Works Conference on May 10, 2019.
All of the responses to this survey will be kept strictly confidential. Your individual or company responses will never be public, and survey results will only ever be presented in aggregate form. WorkInCulture, its Board of Directors, and its funders will not have access to any unique survey responses.
