Thread Name: Digital Folk survey. Please take part!
Subject: RE: Digital Folk survey. Please take part!
Dear all,

Many thanks to those who have already completed the survey, and apologies to everyone who found it confusing / difficult to fill in. I inherited the survey when I took on the role at Sheffield this summer, but will take into account all comments when considering how we might improve on it in the future.

It is perhaps worth saying that this survey forms only a small part of the Digital Folk project, which also includes extended fieldwork and interviews (I come from an ethnography background after all!). The aims of the survey are to 'take the temperature' of folk arts participation more broadly, and to identify key areas for more in-depth study. We really appreciate all contributions, and although the project has a nominal UK focus, we are keen to hear from others based elsewhere worldwide.

For anyone still considering whether or not to fill in the survey, please don't feel obliged to answer all questions if they do not seem relevant to you, or they have become too repetitive. If you skip ahead to the end of the survey, there is a text box for 'anything else' which can be used to summarise / tell us how we might improve our questions.

Thanks again for the constructive feedback,
