Survey: Online harassment of artists
29 Jan 2018
BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

International Arts Rights Advisors, a collective of arts and human rights experts of which Index on Censorship’s Julia Farrington is an associate,
is concerned that there is a chill on artistic expression as a result of artists being intimidated, trolled, harassed and bullied online in reaction to their artistic and expressive activities.

They are conducting a survey to help them understand the nature and scale of these threats, how they impact on artistic activity in the online space and what steps can be taken in response.

This is a “testing the water” survey, to get a sense of the scale, reach and nature of online harassment, rather than try to measure it in any scientific way.

The survey is anonymous.

IARA respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your anonymity.

IARA is also collecting case studies, so if you’d like to tell them more about your experience, please write to them at: artsrightsadvisors@gmail.com

This survey will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Stories continue to emerge of artists and cultural professionals being denied visas to the UK,
highlighting the worsening situation for migrants.

Immigration experts have also noted how the government has changed its implementation of
the Control of Entry Through Ireland Order 1972,
long ignored in practice, to deny access to artists.
