The Lawrence Music Alliance is in the midst of conducting the first citywide music census, which aims to “gain a comprehensive insight into the current requirements of Lawrence’s music community.”

The online survey seeks responses from musicians, venue owners, nonprofits and other music professionals — those who contribute “any type of music-related work, with or without compensation, and you believe your skills and commitment are worthy of acknowledgement and support,” according to the census website.

The census takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete, depending on the category and the length of comments you provide.

“This marks a significant milestone as it will be the City’s first time having data specifically tailored to advocate for the local music scene and formulate policy solutions and approaches,” according to a news release announcing the census.

The census will be open through Friday, March 22. Data from the census — including a summary report, data deck and a diversity, equity and inclusion report — will be released in the fall, according to the website.

“As we embark on the Lawrence Music Census, our mission is to uncover the nuanced needs of our vibrant music community,” Nick Carswell, director of the Lawrence Music Alliance, said in the release. “By gathering insights from a diverse range of industry professionals, we aim to paint a comprehensive picture that will not only advocate for our local music scene but also pave the way for strategic initiatives and policies. The participation of individuals across the spectrum of the music ecosystem is key, and we’re excited to witness the positive impact this data-driven approach will have on nurturing the health and growth of Lawrence’s music industry.”

The Lawrence Music Alliance is collaborating with the Kansas Creative Arts and Industries Commission, the City of Lawrence and Sound Music Cities for the initiative.
