I undertake a variety of research commissions ranging from large scale quantitative audience surveys to stakeholder interviews and public discussion groups. Some recent research projects include:
For the Circulate consortium I undertook an exploration of how audiences develop a critical understanding of outdoor arts, and what organisations can do to support this greater engagement. The research included focus group discussions with audiences at the Stockton International Riverside Festival as well as various Circulate partners.
I led a large scale quantitative enquiry into the film and cinema habits of audiences under 30 across Northern Ireland for Film Hub NI.
For the national Creative People and Places (CPP) programme, I worked alongside my colleague Clare Thurman to map and analyse approaches to audience engagement across the 21 Places. Our research report is here
For Revoluton Arts in Luton I created a series of case studies demonstrating how their work has impacted on local creatives and communities.
