As part of the Bilateral project, we kindly ask you to fill out the survey at

With this survey, which is part of the bilateral project between Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, we aim to accurately evaluate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on stakeholders in the music industry, as they are among the most important creators of the cultural environment. We would like to get a closer understanding of your feelings and the problems you faced when performances were impossible. We are also interested in the consequences this has left on you and whether it has affected your future decisions.

We kindly ask you to answer the questions as honestly as possible, as only then the results can potentially be useful to the legislature with the aim of improving the situation.

The survey is completely anonymous and will not take more than 10 minutes of your time. We sincerely thank you in advance for your help.
