Evaluations, Research, Feasibility & Impact Studies

 

 

We offer expertise in identifying and appraising the impacts of cultural sectors, projects and programmes or in testing the feasibility of creative, business, operational or capital plans.

 

We can help you undertake strategic sector Research, Audits and Reviews or to conduct formal Economic Impact or Feasibility Studies to test the reach of programmes or lay the foundations for future policy or investment.

 

We can provide packages of advice or support to meet your needs; from Initial Guidance in setting-up robust evaluation frameworks, to conducting Longitudinal Reviews. We offer experience in evaluating arts and cultural programmes against public health, community development, education or young people's service agendas.
