Tell Us Your Views

Dear AAS Members & Supporters

We have probably all felt overwhelmed at some stage over the past few weeks due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting constant and dramatic changes in our lives and concerns over financial uncertainty and the health and wellbeing of family and friends. 

We really hope you and yours are safe and well, and we urge you to follow safety guidelines so that we can all get through this together. We know you have seen this already, but just in case here is the link to the Scottish Government Guidelines.

As makers and creative people we also face particular challenges as making is not just how we earn money, it is part of who we are and how we experience the world. 

Applied Arts Scotland is a voluntary organisation run ‘by makers for makers’, so we are all facing the same hurdles. We want to support one another and excited by the idea of ‘Rethinking our Rhythms' we have developed a new programme to support makers. 

We would like to hear your thoughts on our plans and find out if there are other things we could be doing to support your creativity and wellbeing.

Please help us reach as many makers as possible by sharing this survey with colleagues or promoting it on social media using hashtag #rethinkingourhythms 

We very much look forward to hearing from you.
