AFA: Tell us how COVID-19 is impacting your practice

Apr 08 2020

We are seeking information from the Alberta arts community on the impacts from COVID-19 and the response to prevent its spread.

If you are not an AFA-funded arts organization – or if you are an individual artist – we are requesting that you voluntarily provide us with this information so we can use it in assessing the current and ongoing impacts to our arts community and how best to address them and provide support.

Please use this form to tell us how COVID-19 is impacting your practice.

  • If you are an AFA client who has already received a request for information from your grant consultant, you do not need to fill out this form.
  • Please email your completed form to Please submit your response by April 10, 2020 as we will be completing an initial analysis of the data received. We encourage you to update us as things progress/change, and will accept additional submissions after that date to support ongoing analysis.

Our staff have already begun to reach out to arts organizations that receive operating funding through the AFA to assess the current state of the arts sector. We encourage these clients to continue to work with their grant consultant to provide this information.

Please note any information provided to the AFA may be shared with the Government of Alberta, and will be subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. It will only be used to compile statistical information about potential implications for Alberta’s arts sector due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have questions about AFA funding or support, please visit our website for Frequently Asked Questions or email Immediate questions or concerns regarding a pending or existing grant should be directed to your current grant consultant.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey.

We will continue to post information and updates on our website at as they become available.
