COVID IMPACT SURVEY
Our February 2023 COVID impact survey received a significant response rate of 80% (1,293) of NYSCA’s 1,614 FY2023 grantees, providing tremendous insights into the state of New York’s non-profit arts and culture sector recovery.
While signs of improvement are indicated, the sector is still in active recovery mode and experiencing operational and programmatic paradigm shifts. Key data points include:
- Continued reductions in workforce.
- Decreases in audiences as a result of 1) decreased tourism and 2) shift towards more hybrid arts experiences.
- Decreased revenue (both earned and contributed).
- Dramatically increased operating costs.
