Is the freedom the internet initially offered the arts to publish work and find audiences becoming more restrictive? Do artists feel free to express themselves through their work online, or is the fear of censure and online attack leading to self-censorship?
The Space and Index on Censorship are conducting a survey relating to Artistic Freedom of Expression and the Internet. We are interested in hearing from UK arts and cultural professionals to help us gauge current opinions and experiences in publishing creative content online.
This will help us shape our learning programmes and resources around this area and identify if there are trends or restrictions that you believe are impacting on the variety of work being published, shared and commented about online.
If you’re a UK based artists, or work for a cultural, creative or heritage organisations that has published work online, we’d like to hear from you. The survey shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes and all of your responses are anonymous/anonymised.
We will be publishing the highlights of the survey on our website once the results are analysed.
