ViVA Launches First Formal Survey – Small Academic Museums & Galleries

ViVA invites small academic museums and galleries (less than 10 staff) to participate in ViVA’s first formal survey. Recognizing that we continue to navigate a tumultuous period, our team would like to learn about the current state of the field for small academic museums and galleries. We have prepared a short series of questions that will help us begin to understand the challenges being faced by museum professionals who wear many hats. As former directors, curators and educators for small operations of 1-10 staff members, many members of ViVA’s leadership and team of educators are aware of the unique issues facing this professional demographic. But 2020 changed everything!

The survey should take less than 10 minutes and will remain open through December 31, at which point we will begin to collate and interpret the findings. We anticipate publicly sharing the results via the Association of Academic Museums & Galleries (AAMG) listserv and this newsletter in January 2022, and commit to distributing more detailed findings with those who participate. Confidentiality will be maintained in all reporting.
