You will have received an email recently with a link to a new survey the ITP team are sending to all ITP Fellows – do let me know if you did not receive it. We would really like to capture updates from ITP fellows in this survey, such as information on job changes, career and project updates from the last 9 months in case we have missed any news during this strange time.

We are also keen to hear about COVID-19 related projects and programmes in order to record what the ITP network has, is and will be doing. Claire has been in touch with you all about the COVID-Collecting project at the BM and she also wrote a blog on the subject after attending a Museums Association online session at their conference in November which you can read here if you want some inspiration! We would be very interested to hear about ideas, plans and existing ventures that you and/or the organisation you work for are involved in.


So, the survey covers the following three areas:

  • Your career and projects to up-date our ITP blog site.
  • COVID-19 and lockdown news to highlight the work of our network during the pandemic.
  • Reflections on our new, online ITP sessions.

Survey responses will be read by the ITP team only and we will use this information to inform future projects and our database, as well as being used to update your biographies on the ITP blog. As we have more online and digital content coming up, your feedback on our recent online sessions is vital to ensure we are offering the most useful, relevant and enjoyable content to the network.

In case you missed it, the link to the survey is below and the deadline is 9pm (GMT) on 21st December.

2020 has been challenging, unique and unexpected for everyone – thank you in advance for taking the time to fill out the survey, your feedback is so important to the ITP and will help networking and planning for the future. Thanks to those of you who have sent your completed survey back already and we look forward to reading them.
