Sound Diplomacy, a global expert in developing long-term and self-sufficient music strategies for cities, has launched an online survey to assess our region’s music ecology, evaluate the economic and social impact of its music and determine its strengths and weaknesses.

The survey is a continuation of the research trip that Sound Diplomacy carried out in September, during which over 80 music ecosystem stakeholders were engaged in roundtables and personal interviews and 120+ people attended the public town hall meeting at George’s Majestic Lounge.

The goal of the survey is to better understand, gauge and measure the music ecosystem in the region. It is accessible to professionals and musicians in the local music ecosystem, as well as the general public/audience.

Depending on your role in the Northwest Arkansas music ecosystem, the survey will take between 10 and 25 minutes to complete. The survey will close on January 31, 2019.

Please note, that although it’s possible to take the survey on a mobile device, they recommend that you use your laptop or desktop computer for the best user experience.

Thank you in advance for your time and participation!

We’ve been fortunate to meet a number of amazing musicians and businesses already, and in order for us to better understand the region and ensure we get it right, I ask that you work with us and fill out a survey, which will help us better understand the make-up of the region's music infrastructure and how it can be better optimized.
