Michigan Fairs & Festivals Producers – Your Help is Needed


Arts, Beats & Eats

Although Michigan’s cultural sector is a key economic driver, it currently lacks a scientific-based method for measuring and reporting data related to its market. To address this issue, the Michigan Department of History, Arts and Libraries and MSU are developing a Cultural Economic Development Tool, CEDOT.

An important part of this tool is recruiting online panels of voluntary respondents representing various segments of Michigan’s cultural sector. If you are a festival or fair producer you are invited to become a panelist. You will be contacted periodically with online surveys requesting data that will be helpful in analyzing this sector’s impact.

The first step is to register (one per festival or event) so that you will be sent the survey(s) as they are developed. The initial information should take only a few minutes to fill out. The surveys will be emailed to you periodically and may be specific to some of the information you provided for the panel registration.

You can get involved by signing up to the new Fair and Festival Producers Panel at: http://www.culturaleconomicpanels.msu.edu/

Please forward this to anyone you know producing festivals or events in Michigan!
