The “Independent Cultural Sector in Bulgaria – March 2020” Survey is initiated by a group of organizations and individuals active in the independent arts and culture sector in Bulgaria. Its purpose is to collect data on the independent arts sector in the country, mainly in connection with their direct and potential losses from the declared state of emergency. The results will be used as an argument for public institutions to introduce compensatory measures to counteract damage in this sector and to preserve it as a whole.
The survey was distributed online in the period March 22-24, 2020. It is filled by 496 people, of which 68% are individuals and 32% are representing organizations in the sector.
