Measuring what matters:  Tracking data and measuring impact at your cultural heritage institution


Tracking statistics at your institution is an important way to measure the impact your programs have in your community. Yet collecting and analyzing that data can be time-consuming.  Ken Amaral, Policy and Research Analyst from Department of Canadian Heritage, will discuss the importance of data collection by museums in our province and how such data can be used to tell the story of our sector. Ken will discuss his work with The Government of Canada Survey of Heritage Institutions: 2019, how their survey seeks to collect and interpret data and what data is important for BC museums, galleries and cultural centres to capture – no matter what the size of your institution.  Ken will also discuss best practices for collecting “industry characteristics” data, such as number of visits, volunteer hours, employees, research requests, etc. Webinar participants will come away with ideas on how to streamline data collection processes at their institution as well as how to use this data to make a case to your local government about your impact.


Registration is FREE for BCMA members; $15 for non-members.
