Expertise

Research and evaluation

We provide original research and robust evaluations that help you improve what you do, plan new programmes, test policies and make the case for your work.

We have sector-leading capabilities in assessing the social, cultural and economic impacts of cultural and creative activities.

Our evaluation work takes in major multi-million pound investment programmes in fields as diverse as business and innovation support, entrepreneurship, philanthropy and fundraising, capital investment, major events, cultural exchange and development, environmental sustainability, and skills development.

We also help organisations (e.g. major foundations, cultural funders, arts and creative organisations, charities) to improve and embed an evaluation culture within their work.

We provide bespoke economic, social and market research that meets a wide range of client needs. Recurring areas of our research include intellectual property policy; sector studies and forecasts at local, regional and national level; cultural statistics; audience and user research; and film, music and design policy.
