An exciting 24 hour culture survey is taking place on 21st October 2016! It’s a great opportunity to gather how much cultural activity is taking place in only ‘24hrs’ from reading a book to watching a film, visiting a gallery or theatre and so much more!


Heres an opportunity for you to take part and share this information with colleagues, friends, and your local community! //



This major arts survey entitled 24 Hour Culture will launch this month to take a snapshot of how and why people experience arts and culture in their everyday lives across South East Wales.


Respondents will be asked what cultural activities they have taken part in during one 24-hour period, from noon on Friday, 21 October to noon on Saturday, October 22.


The short questionnaire will go live at and is set to celebrate events, venues, organised activities and clubs that respondents might have attended. The survey is also interested in hearing about interests that people undertake, sometimes without even consciously identifying them as cultural, which might include reading a book or watching a film, hearing music, singing or writing poetry.


The initiative is commissioned by a collective of key arts organisations and individuals in Wales, which has members ranging from large national bodies to independent practitioners including WMC, WNO, BBC NOW, NTW, National Dance Company Wales, Arts Council of Wales and 10 local authorities across South East Wales.


The main aims are:


- To highlight the importance of culture in the region, and celebrate all that happens over any given 24 hour period in south east Wales - but especially 21/22 October.


- To pick apart the word ‘culture’ to open it up and shine a spotlight on the fact that culture is everywhere, every day.


We would like to invite you to take part and contribute to the 24hrs of cultural activity!
