ixia’s Public Art Survey 2013

Date uploaded: October 30, 2013

ixia has launched its third annual survey into public art. We are asking you to provide us with your answers to a set of questions about public art - and are seeking your responses now - whether you are based in the UK or internationally.

The survey investigates:

  • The range of individuals and organisations who are engaged with public art;
  • How public art is funded;
  • Where public art is happening; and
  • Why individuals and organisations value public art.

Last year’s survey showed an active and core public art sector of at least 1,000 people working within a market valued at at least £53m in England alone. Whilst this was a fall of 6% on the previous year, it still represented an employment market of around £17m for artists and arts workers. With the development sector showing signs of recovery over the last 12 months, and new planning policies and guidance actively promoting cultural well-being and public art, will this year’s survey identify an increase in the size and value of the public art sector? Are there any new funding models emerging?

We are interested in your views and experiences, whether you are directly involved with, used to be involved with, or simply have an interest in public art. The survey will take between 3 to 15 minutes to complete, depending on the extent of your involvement with public art.

The survey is confidential and only aggregated data will be published. All subscribers to ixia/Public Art Online’s e-list will receive a summary of the survey's findings at the same time as the media. To complete the survey please click here.
