Abstract:

A three-year joint programme of research led by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) with some of their associated agencies. The report is focused on making the best use of the available evidence to draw together our understanding of what drives people to engage, what the impacts of that engagement might be, and how we might value that engagement for economic appraisal.

Its specific focus is: exploring new methods for determining the value of engagement that go beyond standard economic / monetary valuation; marshalling the available evidence on engagement in culture and sport; demonstrating how robust synthesis can add value to the findings to support evidence on ‘what works’; developing a theory and working model of engagement that can serve as a focal point, and bringing all the evidence together to inform policy decisions and support an increasing knowledge base in this area.
