Artists need to be counted!


The United States Department of Commerce will be conducting the 2010 Census, which will find out how many people live in New York City, how many elected representatives we will have in Congress, determine who will represent you in the City Council and in the New York State Legislature, determine how much funding we will receive from the federal government for education, healthcare, job training, transportation, senior services, and other critical services important to all New Yorkers.

It is important for NYC artists to be counted.

New York City artists need to participate to ensure that we get our fair share of funding from the federal government to improve schools and healthcare, fight crime, repair roads, and support other critical City services for all New Yorkers.

Take a moment now to complete the Census form.

Do you think it is important for artists to take the census? Why?

  1. I think it’s great that you’re encouraging artists to be counted, and it makes me wonder if nyit is leading/organizing the indie community to be sufficiently counted in the new Cultural Data Project -
