titled: Sustainable Careers for Artists and Arts Practitioners Umanga
Toitū mō ngā Ringa Rehe Toi, me ngā Tohunga Toi. No financial compensation
was paid to any of the attendees.
Providing feedback through both the online survey and the forums was
optional for all respondents. They were welcome to provide feedback
through the online survey however the forums were offered as an additional
option for people to interact with Creative New Zealand and provide
feedback to the discussion paper. The same information was gathered at the
forums, as was gathered through the online survey.
