Take part in the Engaging Curators survey

ENGAGING CURATORS SURVEY - a Bath Spa University PhD Project
Is your curator doing work you want to shout about?
How involved is your curator in your museum’s audience engagement strategies?
Contribute to research for your sector in the South West.

‘ENGAGING CURATORS’ is a PhD research project by Jillian Sutherland, in association with Bath Spa University, that asks the question: How does curatorship and audience engagement come together in the small museum?

You are invited to participate in the ENGAGING CURATORS SURVEY. Please refer to the attachments for further information on how to participate.

About the survey

The survey, now live, is the First Stage of the project and is for anyone working or volunteering at any sized museum in the South West of England whose role is not a 'curator' or member of curatorial staff. The Second Stage will involve curatorial staff - details will be distributed in due course.

The purpose of the survey is to share insights into how curatorial staff engage with audiences, institutions and teams, from the perspective of non-curatorial team members.

Please find details of the survey and the link in the below invitation along with more details about the project and the researcher. The survey is anonymous and organisations won't be identified
