Research & Publications
The Center's research agenda covers three main areas of work.
First, the Center''s staff and faculty affiliates undertake a
number of research projects on key
topics in arts and cultural policy. At present the Center is working
on issues related to cultural conflict; urban revitalization;
innovation in theatre; new technologies, inequality and access
to culture; publishing and archives; and the digital humanities.
Second, many of the research projects supported by the Center
result in working papers and occasional
papers, which are made available to the public, scholars and
public and private policy makers.
Third, the Center has organized meetings and designed research
projects that attempt to stimulate and help facilitate the ongoing
collection and dissemination of high
quality baseline data on artists, arts organizations, participation
in and beliefs about the arts and humanities, and the impact of
the arts on communities. The most important result of this work
has been the creation of CPANDA –
Cultural Policy and the Arts National Data Archive – a fully
searchable digital archive containing policy relevant information
on arts and culture.
