On Thursday morning I was in London to meet Angus McCabe from the Third Sector Research Centre. Angus is leading TSRC’s work on ‘below the radar’ community organisations and is currently interviewing a range of national networks and infrastructure bodies who support small community groups. He is particularly concerned about the lack of academic research into small cultural organisations and very keen to look at the impact of voluntary arts groups on their communities.

I’ve also been in contact with Angus and contributed thoughts on the below the radar project – I’m glad they are looking at it but I worry that they (the research centre) need to be very careful because below a certain level the sector is pretty much un-map-able! CSC are on both the Below the Radar and Advisory Board so happy to try and input thoguths and views form a Vol Arts perspective where appropriate; best wishes; matt
