AIM has appointed DC Research to research the expansion of the successful and much-used AIM Economic Impact Toolkit to include social and environmental questions. This work, supported by Arts Council England (ACE), will review recent thinking and approaches to measuring social and environmental impact in museums.
A social and environmental impact evaluation/assessment framework will be developed, and piloted with a small number of AIM member museums before producing a report and toolkit that will complement the Economic Impact Toolkit.
As part of this, DC Research is keen to be made aware of any reports, papers and other material that AIM members have produced giving evidence of how independent museums create social and environmental impacts. This might include evidence you have prepared for funders and wider advocacy audiences, research you have participated in, case studies, or research or articles you have found helpful and that DC Research should be made aware of.
