State of the sector survey

AIM’s 2023 state of the sector survey is now open and we want to hear from you.

Following on from our previous surveys, we’re keen to assess how museums have fared over the summer holiday period and the impact the current cost of living crisis is having on the sector. The state of the sector survey we ran this time last year was invaluable in helping us understand the challenges you were facing and in giving us the evidence we needed to make the case for support for independent museums.

We’re asking for your help again to provide governments and funding bodies with robust and specific information about the impact of rising costs (including on your visitors), and the level of need, both to the end of the calendar year and thinking ahead to 2024.

By completing this survey, you can help us continue to make the case for the support independent museums and heritage require. With an election expected in the next 12 – 18 months, it’s vital for us to have the most up to date information on the state of the sector, even if you have completed a similar survey for us before.

I appreciate that you’re busy and am grateful for your time to complete this survey. The survey will be open until Sunday 24 September.

Thank you,
Lisa (AIM Director)
