AIM's new toolkit - can you help?

AIM has appointed DC Research to expand the successful and much-used AIM Economic Impact Toolkit (see under More AIM below) to include social and environmental questions.

Supported by Arts Council England (ACE), 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.   DC Research would like to hear of any reports, papers and other material that AIM members have produced giving evidence of how independent museums create social and environmental impacts, for instance evidence prepared for funders and wider advocacy audiences, research you have participated in, case studies, or articles you have found helpful.

Please share anything you think is relevant with Jonathan Durnin, tel 0116 259 2390.
