We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.

Cultural Value Project Funding Call

Applications are invited for grants under the AHRC’s Cultural Value Project.

In launching this two-year Cultural Value Project, the AHRC wishes to make a major contribution to how we think about the value of arts and culture to individuals and to society. 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.

We anticipate 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 strength 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.

For full information on criteria, areas of particular interest, eligibility, assessment procedures and supporting documents required please see this funding call document (PDF) (PDF, 366KB).

In order to raise awareness, we will be holding three town meetings for prospective applications. Follow the link for further details: AHRC Cultural Value Project: Town Meetings.
