About the Event

Join us for an evening to learn about the Chicago Arts Census Survey

The Chicago Arts Census Survey Team will be presenting and answering any questions you may have before submitting your survey. 

You can also choose to fill out the survey ahead of time and still join us for an opportunity to meet other artists and creatives over lite snacks and drinks. 

The goal of the Census is to gather 1,000+ responses across geographic, experiential, discipline, and demographic information. Your participation ensures a stronger, unified voice for change.

The Census closes on June 20th! Follow the link in the Census bio to take the survey!

Chicago Arts Census Mission

The Chicago Arts Census is a comprehensive, cross-discipline data collection effort in the city created by and with the art workers of Chicago.

The Census is built to amplify our voices as art workers in Chicago, serve as an advocacy tool fighting for better working, living, and making conditions, and create opportunities for coalition-building across art sectors.

It does so by collecting, mapping, and visualizing data sets identified by and with art workers to better illuminate the reality of our living and working conditions. At present, a complex and intersectional account of our labor does not exist. The collected data will be translated into a series of maps, a website, a publication, and public programs that demonstrate the interwoven and dependent relationships that make up Chicago’s art ecosystem.


El Censo de Artes de Chicago es un esfuerzo integral de recopilación de datos interdisciplinarios en la ciudad creado por y con los trabajadores del arte de Chicago.

El Censo está construido para magnificar nuestras voces como trabajadores del arte en Chicago, servir como una herramienta de apoyo que lucha por mejores condiciones de trabajo, vida y creación, y crear oportunidades para la formación de coaliciones en los sectores artísticos de Chicago.

Lo hace mediante la recopilación, representación y visualización de conjuntos de datos identificados por y con los trabajadores del arte para mejor iluminar la realidad de nuestras condiciones de vida y trabajo porque no existe una narrativa exhaustiva y confluente de nuestra labor. Los datos recopilados se traducirán en una serie de mapas, un sitio web, una publicación y programas públicos que demuestran las relaciones entrelazadas y dependientes que conforman el ecosistema artístico de Chicago.
