About us

Slover Linett is an audience research firm for the arts, culture and informal science sectors. We help museums, arts organizations and other nonprofits understand their audiences so they can connect to more people, more deeply.

Tall order? Sure. But we see it happening every day. Our studies — which range from market research to program evaluation and outcomes assessment — reveal how well institutions are connecting with their audiences and how that connection can be deepened and broadened.

Our findings bring leaders, staff, and trustees together around a clear picture of the audience and a shared vision of progress.

The result is more creative, confident decision-making across your organization: more innovative programming, more resonant messaging, and greater success in both mission and revenue terms.
