Current Projects

CultureCase for King’s College London

I am the creator and editor of CultureCase: a resource from King’s College London that takes carefully selected academic research from universities and scholars around the world and turns it into short accessible summaries that demonstrate the impacts of arts and culture, as well as informing future planning.

Researcher in Residence for People Make it Work

I am the ‘Researcher in Residence’ for a range of projects delivered by People Make it Work. It was a role I designed for the Change Creation Programme and something we’ve deployed in the Hammersmith and Fulham Community Arts Commission and Culture Reset.

Evaluator for Accumulate

Accumulate – The Art School for the Homeless – provides creative workshops to young, homeless people who are living in hostels or temporary accommodation in London. I have been Accumulate’s evaluator since 2020 and my report on their activity in 2019 can be found here.

SDUK Resilience project

I am working with Stage Directors UK to feed research into their Resilience project which is aimed at offering career support and mentoring for freelance theatre workers as they adapt to working after the pandemic. See coverage of the project in The Stage.

Culture Forum North partnership research

I am working as the programme lead for an initial stage of research, discussion and evaluation to help Culture Forum North develop a vision, a framework and recommendations for how the HE and cultural sectors can work in concert as we rebuild after the pandemic.
