Trish invites you to fill in our Dao readers survey… / 8 April 2014

This is the third consecutive year that we’re asking you to take part in our annual reader survey. It is absolutely crucial to our role in the arts to remain vibrant and interesting:  This is your chance to tell us what you like about Dao and how you would change or improve on our website, social media interaction and our activities out in the ‘real world’.  By giving us this valuable feedback we can make changes so that everyone gets a better service.

Last year lots of people suggested we should deliver more video content and we started to do that with our Diverse Perspectives project. This year we are planning a whole new section of the website for audio/visual content from individual artists and organisations.  We’ve added a question specifically about this so that we can build your feedback into the project and importantly use those comments for funding applications. If you’d like to take a more detailed role in the planning of this project then do contact me directly

We had some really great feedback last year, which helped us secure three year core funding from the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. This covers a proportion of the running costs of the organisation so that we can continue to bring you up-to-date news, listings and insights into the arts from a disability perspective. We still need to raise funds to cover the rest of the running costs as well as projects including commissions for disabled artists.  

Just a few minutes of your time to answer 20 questions will help us to achieve this.  Plus, one lucky person will snap up £50 of online vouchers as a thank you for taking part.
