Research


In line with our social and civic mission, we are working closely with local and national government, charities and service providers, as well as cultural and arts organisations to transform lives, economies and communities.

Through a deep understanding of creativity, place and heritage and an interrogation of social, cultural and public policy, this work contributes to community and regional development and offers insight into the regeneration and rebirth of towns and cities shaped by industrialisation and the global movement of people.
