As a Creative People and Places, research is fundamental to our project and what we’re about. We want to know what we’re doing is either working – or not! – so we can understand audience behaviour.
We have an evaluator embedded within the team and we work closely with independent researcher Ruth Melville. This work’s based on the principles of Story of Change, allowing the team to go through a process of helping us to understand what we’re trying to achieve and why, and enabling us to set our research questions for each project.
Have a look at our most recent reports:
