The research has the capacity to be transformational for the O’Keeffe Museum. Slover Linett took the time to listen, understand our needs, and integrate their work with another consultant team… As a result, the staff is eager to develop and implement experimental programs to attract and retain new audiences. Peter and his team are not only experts in audience research; they are experienced, thoughtful, and sophisticated partners who are willing to think with my team.”

In these times, research matters more…and differently. Because your community and audience need to have a voice and want to be heard. We hope you and loved ones are staying safe and sane during these trying times. Our team at Slover Linett is working from home, and we’re adapting and learning fast as the situation evolves.

In our hurry to get our cultural content out there, let’s not forget that innovation requires a feedback loop, a creative back-and-forth with the humans in your community who need you differently now — and in some ways need you more. Feedback should be built into the process…

@OFBYFOR_ALL @ninaksimon Looking forward! Belonging may be THE question in the arts, especially in the transitions ahead.
