Audience Research Brief: Contemporary Conflict

Imperial War Museum is looking to award a contract to undertake research intended to delve deeper into what audiences want and need from IWM in terms of its ‘contemporary programme’.

This brief outlines an exciting research project which will look to define what audiences expect from IWM, and how far we can be ‘contemporary’ in their eyes.

Deadline for proposals: 29 July

Funding available: £18,000

  1. Hi Mark

    Could you send myself and Chris O’Leary details of the £700k big lottery fund bid? We are currently running a major EU project on social investment and are published in this area.
