AHRC Cultural Value Project Funding – deadline 16 April 2013
Applications are now invited for grants under the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)’s Cultural Value Project.
The objective of the Project is to develop a framework within which the different components of cultural value will be identified and to establish for each of the components methodologies and appropriate types of evidence for evaluating their contribution. A key aspect of this evaluation is to assess the value of cultural activity with regard to health.
The AHRC anticipates funding between 20 and 40 projects from a range of disciplinary, conceptual and methodological perspectives. The call is designed to provide better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the existing body of research, to address the gaps in current research, and to advance innovative ways of defining, evidencing and evaluating the various ways in which arts and cultural activities generate value.
