The Guardian are hoping to build up a picture of what working life looks like: what jobs people do, how much they get paid and what the main issues affecting cultural work are, including a chance for you to voice your opinions in detail.

The information provided by you in this questionnaire will only be accessible by the research team, who are academics from the University of Sheffield, Goldsmiths, and the LSE. It will not be used in a manner which would allow identification of your individual responses, and it will be stored securely by Goldsmiths

The Guardian will be publishing the findings as part of Panic! in November 2015, a Createproject which will involve 10 days of events in partnership with Goldsmiths, the Barbican and British Art Show 8. If you’d like more information about the project or contact
