The aim of the research is to support the work of the CPP Places and strengthen the practice of other community based arts/culture projects where consortium and multiple partnership working can be customary.
The research objectives are:
- To articulate the Arts Council’s aims for CPP projects to be managed through the framework of a consortium
- To understand the mechanism of CPP consortium development
- To understand the experiences of CPP consortium working, including practicalities, challenges and opportunities
- To understand different governance models within arts/culture and other comparative sectors, including pros and cons
- To understand steps for effective governance for future practice
- To gain an understanding of how CPP consortia have changed over a period of time (via a small scale follow up study)
A research report is required which will be published online and included in CPP programme research literature. The report may include the following suggested deliverables:
- Summary of literature review, including best practice examples of governance and consortium (outside of CPP, including other relevant sectors)
- A set of recommendations to support effective consortium and partnership working
- A management ‘health check’ for the consortium
- Interview transcripts
- Follow-up report after a relevant period of time (timings to be agreed)
