Questionnaire: Creative Responses to Coronavirus Pandemic

Creating a Time Capsule of Collaborative and Integrative Practices in an Unprecedented Time

Creativity often flourishes in stressful times because innovation evolves out of need. With this questionnaire we want to record and build on the creative impulses that this moment is generating. What do our creative responses to the pandemic tell us about our society, our level of resilience, and how we might imagine the future? We want to hear from you. Please tell us about your creative responses to the coronavirus pandemic by completing this short questionnaire. Please share this questionnaire with your networks!

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are witnessing a range of responses from personal to global and from community to institutions to industry. The purpose of this inquiry is to capture creative, multidisciplinary, transdisciplinary and/or collaborative responses to the coronavirus. The intent is to create a marker in time – a time capsule – of creative projects in response to these unprecedented times.

We seek responses from all sectors that involve creative problem-solving and co-creating to the collateral challenges that include but are not limited to industry, medical research, technology, education, community, academia, entertainment, arts, humanities, and policy makers.
