The Reading Agency
Access to Arts & Culture
Arts-based programmes and projects make a positive impact for people, organisations and the local community.
Renaisi supports arts and culture organisations to evaluate their work in a meaningful way that acknowledges their distinctive artistic practices and ethos. We have a strong track record of helping arts and cultural organisations to reflect on what is unique about their work, supporting them to develop new approaches and understand their impact.
Renaisi’s consultants have used their social research expertise to undertake bespoke projects in the sector including an Arts Council England project to help build the evidence base of the contribution that libraries can make to local and national priorities.
Questions we’re interested in exploring:
- How can arts and cultural organisations better communicate the difference their work makes to individuals and communities?
- How can evaluation approaches be successfully integrated into participatory arts practices?
- How can funders support arts and cultural organisations to understand their social impact in a proportionate way?
- What is the relationship between locally rooted arts organisations and place?
