SACO PESP SURVEY REPORT The SACO PESP ran from the 30th August to the 15th December 2021. A survey was circulated to all SACO PESP participants (artists and mentors) following the completion of the training programme. The purpose of the survey was to gain feedback from the participants and insight into the programme, to understand where, in the opinion of these beneficiaries, the programme had succeeded in delivering what was intended, where it may have failed to do so and where improvements could be made should the programme be repeated. The survey ran for approximately 17 days (19 November – 5 December. We contacted 899 beneficiaries of the SACO PESP and received a positive response from 688 beneficiaries which represents a 77% response of those contacted.
