Leeds to be home of the UK's first Centre of Cultural Value

The new Centre for Cultural value, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council England, will be based at the University of Leeds. The centre will focus on the role of arts and culture in areas such as conflict resolution, education, health and wellbeing, and community regeneration. The centre will also offer £200,000 of seed funding to arts and cultural organisations wishing to explore new methods of evaluating their cultural value with the support of a dedicated academic researcher.

The centre will bring academic researchers, policy makers and arts and cultural organisations together in useful dialogue and shared understanding. It will also involve a wide range of artists and arts and cultural organisations from across the UK in planning its programme and its activity.

The Centre for culture Value will be based at Leeds’ School of Performance and Cultural Industries and supported closely by the University’s Cultural Institute, which plays a key role in strengthening the University’s position as a global centre of research and teaching excellence in culture, increasing pioneering research collaborations with creative sector partners, widening cultural engagement and participation in arts and culture, widening students’ skills.
