Shaping the new Centre for Cultural Value - feed in your views

We want the Centre for Cultural Value's work to be shaped with and by the arts and cultural sector to ensure that we’re as relevant and useful as possible to you. 

We are holding a series of listening events January to March 2020 to gather feedback about what we’re proposing. If you can't attend an event, this survey is an opportunity to feed in your views. 

The survey closes on 5 March and takes less than 10 mins to complete. 

The Centre for Cultural Value has been set up to explore the differences that art and culture make to people’s lives.  

We plan to develop an evidence base about cultural impacts and to foster a community of shared learning around research and evaluation, so that collectively we can better capture and articulate the impact of the work of the sector.  

We want to make research more accessible, bring together new partners and networks, facilitate conversations and debate, and promote an evidence-based approach to cultural management and policy-making. The Centre won’t be undertaking primary research, or evaluation of other projects. 

The Arts and Humanities Research Council, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council England have funded us to do this work over the next five years. We are based at the University of Leeds and have a UK-wide remit.
