Thank you for helping us find out about the people who use Electric December!

We are interested to find out about you, as someone who is taking part in the Electric December project. We are keen to find out if you use the internet and digital media in other ways - and if so how and what you get out of it. We're also interested in what else you do with your leisure time - especially what other types of arts or cultural activities you take part in.

The survey will help in providing information about how people use digital media, and will also help the Watershed reflect on how this project has been used and what people like about it, which will help in planning future events.

All the information you provide will be compiled so that you remain anonymous, and we will not pass on your contact details to anyone else.
