On Wednesday I had a telephone meeting with Dr Andrew Miles at the Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC) at the University of Manchester. Andrew is leading the Understanding Everyday Participation project – a five-year research study funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council under its Communities, Culture and Creative Economies funding programme. Voluntary Arts is one of the project partners and Andrew and I discussed the role Voluntary Arts will play in the initial phase of the study which will focus on mapping the cultural ecosystems in six contrasting communities (four in England and two in Scotland – supported by additional funding from Creative Scotland). We also talked about the parallels and potential overlap with Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme.
