I was in Cardiff on Friday to meet members of the steering group for our Connected Communities research study into ‘the role of grassroots arts activity in communities’. Daniel and I had a fascinating conversation with Hamish Fyfe from the University of Glamorgan, Jane Milling from the University of Exeter and Hilary Ramsden who has been appointed as the Research Assistant for our project. The study is looking at the impact that amateur arts activity has on the communities in which it happens. At this meeting we provided a range of relevant ‘grey literature’, including newsletters and magazines produced by some of the national voluntary arts umbrella bodies, to add to the academic reports and articles that Hilary is gathering.
