Dear all,


I hope you are all well!


I’m writing to let you know that next Monday, March 18, Americans for the Arts will begin a 1-week important survey using a short, anonymous demographic questionnaire. Understanding the full demographics of everyone receiving membership benefits with Americans for the Arts is crucial to our ongoing efforts related to cultural equity.


I very much hope you will take the time to complete this short and anonymous demographic questionnaire, which will only be open for five days.


We are seeking 100% participation from everyone in the Americans for the Arts universe, including our membership, various advisory committees, our Board of Directors, our staff, and our Artists Committee, as we attempt to see a more complete demographic portrait of our universe.


Given the close deadline, you are likely to receive a few emails from us over the next week about this survey—because of the anonymous nature of it, we must reach out to the full group each time. Thank you in advance for your patience.


Below my signature, please find some other information about the survey. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email Clay Lord directly at


Thank you in advance for your participation!
