Arts Council NI Survey Published

17 December 2020

A new survey commissioned by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland reveals the high numbers of people turning to the arts for solace and relief during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Responses showed that many are choosing to turn to books, crafting, playing a musical instrument, photography and painting, as a source of comfort and distraction, while more people than ever are switching to online sources to access concerts, theatre performances and classes.

The Arts Council of Northern Ireland commissioned Social Market Research (SMR) in October to undertake a survey to establish the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the consumption of the Arts in Northern Ireland. The survey captured the opinions of more than 1,000 people from a broad range of ages and backgrounds to gain an understanding into the extent to which engagement in the arts has enhanced education provision and supported mental health and wellbeing during the pandemic.
