This questionnaire will be used in order to detect structural data of the cultural and creative industries in Neukölln. Our aim is to obtain information about the current situation of the cultural and creative industries, in order to align future strategies and our workshop program for 2017. After a survey in 2014 we would also like to know how the situation changed since then.

All data is collected anonymously and it will be impossible to draw conclusions on your personal or your business data.

The questionnaire is divided into two parts. To assure the time required for you remains as low as possible, we have summarized the most important questions about the structural data of the cultural and creative industries in the first part. If you have very little time, it would be sufficient to complete this part.

We would appreciate it if you had a few minutes of attention for the second part of the questionnaire, too. Here, we mainly want to know why you have established your company in Neukölln.

All information will be used to improve the conditions and structures you, as part of creative industries, will find in your district.

The evaluation of the survey results will be sent to each participant as a thank for their support. We would also like to invite you to a feedback workshop that will discuss the results of the survey and find new perspectives for the support of creative industries in Neukölln. If you take part in the survey, please send us a mail with your contact details and the subject „Kreativ2016" to: kreativwirtschaft@coopolis.de

The questionnaire will require 10 minutes.

Thank you!
