ICOM follow-up survey for museum professionals - please contribute
ICOM has launched a second global survey, which aims to collect and compare information on how the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is affecting the museum sector and museum workers around the world. Please contribute - the survey closes on 5 October.
New and additional data will allow ICOM to analyse the trends of the crisis for the museum sector and to better understand the needs of museums and professionals in the short and long term.
The COVID-19 pandemic is still seriously affecting cultural institutions around the World. While some museums have reopened with major limitations, others are still facing the consequences of the crisis behind closed doors.
ICOM's first report, published back in May, presented a dire situation for museums and museums professionals around the World, with 95% of cultural institutions forced to close in order to safeguard the wellbeing of staff and visitors, and serious economic, social and psychological repercussions.
To gather further information and additional data on how the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is affecting and will affect the cultural sector in the short and long term, we are launching a second global survey. Most of the sections and questions refer to the previous survey, and will allow us to assess the course of the crisis and its perception by museum professionals. Some questions, on the other hand, take into account how the situation has evolved in recent months, especially in view of the progressive reopening of museums in some parts of the world.
New and additional data will allow us to analyse the trends of the crisis for the museum sector and to better understand the needs of museums and professionals in the short and long term.
The online survey is anonymous and is available in English, French and Spanish. It takes no more than 10 minutes to complete.
The survey will close on October 5, 2020
