Arts Council England needs your music feedback!

BOP is undertaking mapping and research of the Midlands music scene for Arts Council England. The research focuses on three inter-related areas – the music sector ecology, talent development and touring – in relation to four genres: contemporary popular, folk, jazz and world music. The aim is to identify and assess challenges and demand for investment within the Midlands Music scene, to ensure future support is effectively targeted. 

The following survey feeds into ACE’s research, and they particularly welcome your insights as sector representatives. Your responses will support a report with recommendations for Arts Council England, with key findings being made publicly available on the Arts Council England website.

The survey ends with the opportunity to become part of a Midlands Music Directory, for those who are interested (more details provided below). 

You can find the survey here: 

Please complete the survey by 31 March at the latest. It should take around 10 minutes to complete. Please see here for Arts Council England’s responses to a list of FAQs on the survey and directory.
