Sustainable Exhibitions for Museums (SEFM) and Stephen Mellor would like to invite you to complete the on-line Exhibitions – Going Green Survey 2018 – Ten Years On, through the following link:
Full details of the survey can be found here, please do forward this on to any interested parties.
SEFM is a UK-based informal network of museum and gallery professionals who want to promote and encourage sustainability in all we do in this field, with a particular focus on the production and staging of exhibitions.
We are looking for survey responses from museums or galleries of any kind – multiple sites may want to submit by each major site. We wish to once again review our industry to assess how environmentally sustainable or ‘green’ our work practices and institutions are, and how our approaches to exhibitions have changed in the last ten years.
To see the results summary of the first survey issued in 2008 follow the following link to the report pdf:
Most questions are ‘green’ and a few new ones ‘financial’ as we are taking this opportunity to see how universally tight budgets have affected exhibition programming and museum operations – perhaps with green benefits.
The actual survey will take roughly 30 minutes but you may need extra time to gather information. You can stop and start until finally selecting the ‘Submit’ button.
The survey will close on Sunday 30 September 2018 at midnight GMT.
The results from this 2018 survey will be added to and compared with the previous 2008 data collected and will be shared in November 2018. All respondents will be sent the survey analysis report by email in due course.
