As Open Studios Sunshine Coast is such an important event in the Arts Connect Inc calendar each year - it is important that we continue to review and evaluate the event and continue to evolve it be get the best outcomes for everyone involved.

And while we are pleased with this year's results, going forward we will need to look at a more sustainable model of delivery, and implementing some changes to how we manage the project.

With these factors in mind, we are keen to get as much feedback / suggestions as possible on your Open Studios experience and how the project could be managed and improved going forward.

We would really appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey below.
