Survey on the Impact of Covid-19 on Portsmouth’s Cultural Sector

Portsmouth Creates, for whom the University of Portsmouth is a stakeholder, needs your help to research how Covid-19 and the lockdown have affected the cultural sector in our City. You can help by answering the questions in this survey.


Portsmouth Creates CIC is a newly established Community Interest Company set up in 2019 to be an independent voice to connect, enable and champion culture, across the city of Portsmouth. They have big ambitions to be a major catalyst for cultural investment and activity in the city and make it a better place for people to live work, play and visit.


Portsmouth Creates, on behalf of Portsmouth’s cultural sector, asks you to take a few moments to complete this survey, and share your views on the impact of Covid-19 on your practice, business and operations. Your answers will inform Portsmouth’s response to the ‘Call for Evidence’ from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) ‘Enquiry into the impact of Covid-19.’

Please submit your response by Friday 29th May 2020 so that your views can be included.

“It’s vital we include as many views as we can, so that we can represent everyone – and give as accurate a picture as possible of the impact Covid-19 has had on the Cultural sector in Portsmouth.

All submissions will be anonymous, unless you explicitly state that you give permission for you, or your organisation, to be named.

Thank you for your time – it is very much appreciated and will help us to represent Portsmouth’s incredible Creative community.”
