In brief

We have produced studies and research by navigating disciplinary and sector divisions, experimenting with innovative approaches and projects, and developing unprecedented cross-sectoral alliances.

We investigate key aspects of creativity, production, organisation, evaluation, and the enjoyment of art and culture. We believe in research that is both useful and rigorous, which integrates an academic approach with experimentation, to nourish projects, policies, and insights.
