The Centre for Cultural Value is building a shared understanding of the differences that arts,culture, heritage and screen make to people’s lives and to society.
We want cultural policy and practice to be shaped by reflective practice and be based on rigorous research and evaluation of what works and what needs to change. To achieve this, we are working in collaboration with partners across the UK to:
- Make existing research more relevant and accessible so its insights can be understood and applied more widely.
- Support the cultural sector and funders to be rigorous in their approaches to evaluation and to foster a culture of reflection and learning.
- Encourage new research partnerships between academics and the cultural sector through our Collaborate fund.
Based at the University of Leeds, the Centre’s core partners are The Audience Agency, The University of Liverpool, The University of Sheffield, The University of York and Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.
The Centre is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation over five years.
