What if there were a team of social researchers—people with serious chops, from disciplines like anthropology, psychology, and public policy—who also understood the arts, museums, science engagement, and the rest of the cultural sector? What if they were passionate about helping that sector not just succeed, but change?

That’s us.

At Slover Linett, we’re all about using the tools of research, evaluation, community dialogue, and experience design to help cultural organizations become more inclusive, innovative, and relevant. For more than twenty years, we’ve been learning how to meld empirical rigor with generative techniques that tap the imagination of the community. How to cross-pollinate ideas from symphonies to science centers, podcasts to parks. How to help cultural leaders take a fresh look at the experiences they offer, the communities they serve, and the power of culture to spark personal and social change.

Applying rigorous methodological tools to immediate and urgent questions that cultural leaders are grappling with—that’s what I love about my work at Slover Linett. Coming from an academic background, it’s great to be able to inform and shape real-world actions.”

Having the privilege of being a #research consultant @SloverLinett is never boring! Our last trip to @WrightTaliesin was great, even with the flat tire and 108 degrees, we just kept on trucking (and got the data).

“Museum leadership & staff have to develop their own cultural competence to be able to curate culturally competent exhibits.”
