The Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery has launched a new online community survey, asking locals and visitors what they would like to see more of at QVMAG.

The survey is available at the City of Launceston's community engagement platform Your Voice Your Launceston at www.yourvoiceyourlaunceston.com.au until Friday 27 May, 2022.

The survey explores the visitation habits of visitors, modes of transport to and from the Art Gallery at Royal Park and the Museum at Inveresk, alongside collating feedback on public programs, exhibition themes, and more.

Launceston Mayor Albert van Zetten said the community survey would produce important insights into what the Northern Tasmanian community would like to see at QVMAG.

'We're always eager to hear from our community about what they would like to see more of, what's working well and where we can make enhancements to the QVMAG offering,' Mayor van Zetten said.

'This community survey is a great opportunity for our locals and visitors to share what they enjoy about QVMAG, and what they would like to see more of in the future.'

City of Launceston General Manager of Creative Arts and Cultural Services Shane Fitzgerald said the survey would support a clear line of communication between Northern Tasmanian communities, tourists and QVMAG.

'It's important to create a direct communication link to our community through surveys such as this, as it allows us to understand broader interest themes of our community and, as a result, offer new and immersive community experiences through our annual programs,' Mr Fitzgerald said.

'Our survey will be open for a six week period, and we encourage everyone to join the discussion and share their interests, ideas and suggestions with us.

'All information shared will support the development of new exhibitions, programs and experiences at QVMAG for locals and tourists visiting Launceston, which is quite exciting.'
