DC Research are delighted to have been appointed by the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver an Evaluation of the Collecting Cultures Programme.
Collecting Cultures Grants totalling £5.1m were awarded in September 2014 to 23 museums, libraries and archives, ranging from £50,000 to £500,000 and totalling £5.1m as part of a new programme of strategic collecting and public engagement projects running from 2014 to 2019
The study will result in annual evaluation reports, as well as a final whole programme impact evaluation – with case studies of each project being developed in the final two years of the evaluation.
HLF has now run two rounds of the Collecting Cultures programme; the first in 2007 funded 22 museums and galleries with grants totalling £3.1m, and DC Research delivered the final impact evaluation.
