Join the panel
How it works
The User Panel is open to anyone over 16. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t visited the Barbican before and you don’t need any technical knowledge of websites. If you have any access requirements, you can add them to your application questionnaire and we can accommodate them ahead of the session.
You won’t be contacted more than once a month to take part in user research session. If you are part of a longer study, we may contact you about different sessions related to that particular research.
We will send you the information about upcoming research opportunities by email. We will also give you contact details for someone from our team, should you wish to contact us directly.
It’s up to you – some of our surveys might only take you 10 minutes but an on-site session might take up to an hour. You can let us know how much time you have available in your application questionnaire.
As a thank you for helping us with our research, you will be rewarded for you time. This could be with prize draws when you take part in an online session or special rewards when you visit us in person.
Research will be conducted through email surveys, online sessions and on-site sessions, depending on what we are researching.
Yes – you can help us with online surveys and remote sessions.
Your personal info will always be anonymised in any public output we create of the research. Your existing Barbican marketing preferences will be respected.
