Museum and gallery representatives invited to complete questionnaire
The University of Cambridge’s Centre for Business Research (CBR) is inviting representatives of the museums, galleries and heritage sector to respond to a survey of cultural organisations funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Researchers are hoping to gain a greater understanding how the cultural sector interacts with other organisations, such as universities, as well as assessing the wider contributions of cultural bodies to the UK economy and society.

Survey manager Anna Bullock said: “By completing this questionnaire, you will assist in developing a deeper understanding of interactions involving cultural organisations.

“You will also help to uncover what more could be done to enhance those interactions and to better inform public policy on the role of cultural organisations.

“Even if you do not interact with other organisations we would be grateful if you would respond to all questions, unless otherwise indicated.”

The survey takes approximately 15 minutes to fill in. The CBR has requested that just one person per organisation fill in the survey in order to avoid any duplication of effort.
