Understanding Our Audiences

18 July 13 -- jsuess

Our Arts Council grant has enabled us to invest in a new programme of evaluation and research to better understand our audiences, their experiences in our museums, and how we can improve both access and experience to existing and potential visitors.

Our evaluation and research programme includes several strands:

Making Museums

11 July 13 -- jsuess

Making Museums is a project of the Pitt Rivers Museum and the Oxford University Natural History Museum and was winner of the Clore Learning Prize 2011.  It is a partnership project with eleven local schools in Blackbird Leys, Cowley, Littlemore, Rose Hill, Barton, Wood Farm and Headington.

Museum News - how do you stay up up to date?

8 July 13 -- jsuess

Last month ASPIRE conducted a brief survey on Museum News, how cultural sector colleagues prefer to keep up with what's happening in the sector, and what kinds of news stories are of the greatest interest.

ASPIRE gathered responses from 73 respondents over 3 weeks (23rd May-14th June 2013), targetting cultural sector colleagues through the ASPIRE website, ASPIRE e-Newsletter, and the South East Museum Development newsletter.

What did that say?

How do you keep up to date?

23 May 13 -- jsuess

This survey is now closed

ASPIRE is keen to know how colleagues working in the museums and cultural sectors keep up to date with what's happening in the field, and what kind of news is most important.

To help us get a picture of this, and how best ASPIRE can inform colleagues in the sector about our work, we're conducting a brief survey.

Oxford Museums at Night

12 April 13 -- jsuess

Take a tour of the fantastic four

The University of Oxford's four Museums have joined forces to create three spectactular late night events as part of the national Museums at Night festival 2013.
