Regional District of North Okanagan launches survey to better understand the effects arts and culture

Cultural survey

Regional district officials want to know more about the impact arts and culture has on the region.

To do so, the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) has launched an online survey to better understand the effects arts and culture have on the lives of Greater Vernon residents.

“Arts and culture take all forms, from participating in events like the Vernon Winter Carnival, listening to or creating live or recorded music, knitting or purchasing a handmade scarf, to enjoying or performing in live theatre,” said a statement from the RDNO. “We know that arts and culture contribute to our local economy, health, and society. To better understand these contributions, the RDNO is undertaking an assessment through research, interviews, and a resident survey to gather data that can be used to understand the many benefits of arts and culture and advocate for continued funding and support for the arts and culture sector.”

The resident survey will play an important role in how the RDNO gathers information.

By completing the online survey and sharing how arts and culture affects your life, residents will help officials understand the benefits of arts and culture to the community.

Participants will also be entered into a draw for the chance to win an iPad.

The online survey is anonymous and will take approximately seven to 10 minutes.
