Research helps clarify what it means to manage in our field. Our research is about reflection, analysis and encouraging new thinking - sorting out what is good, appropriate practice in various settings, dealing with change and multiple agendas. We favour action research and collaborative enquiry, methods which place a high value on the contribution and expertise of those involved.

There are many ways for you to join in and help us with this work. We will soon have a number of questionnaires on line, and we will regularly be asking people to become part of our various projects. Help us build our knowledge base.

Recent research activities have included investigating maps and models of arts and cultural management, effective meetings and networks, understanding learning, and building learning communities.

Results and findings will soon be available to download or order in paper copies. Check our knowledge bank.
