Acceptd to Conduct the Nation’s Largest Survey of Artists’ View on Presidential Candidates.

10/05/16

Acceptd, the World’s Largest Artists network with nearly 200,000 members, has launched a nationwide survey of artists to help match their political ideology to a presidential candidate.

The survey is available here: https://getacceptd.com/presidential-test/ .

Acceptd Co-Founder and President, Don Hunter, said, “Our mission is to serve artists: dancers, actors, musicians, vocalists, cinematographers and visual artists. We recognize that public policy can have a great impact on the role of art in our society. We wanted to help give artist a voice on the issues most important to them during this turbulent election.”

The survey launches today and will be open until Oct. 10th.  The survey uses a short series of questions and publicly stated opinions by each of the four candidates to help artists align their views with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Jill Stein or Gary Johnson.

Artists are then prompted to vote for a candidate through the survey.   After the results are analyzed, the results will be shared with the candidates, the parties, Acceptd members and the media.

“The voices of young artists will be heard by the presidential candidates and hopefully the issues that are important to them will be brought to the forefront of public debate,” Hunter said.

Acceptd is a Columbus based platform connecting artists with thousands of colleges, festivals, scholarships, and professional opportunities.  Acceptd is used by some of the most prestigious universities across the nation including NYU and Juilliard.
