DC Research has recently been analysing Arts Council England (ACE) and Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) data in support of research requests from the Review of Museums in England commissioned by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). This has involved:
- Assisting HLF in answering a specific research question about the impact of HLF capital funding on the sustainability of the museums which it has funded, in particular with reference to new and enhanced revenue streams.
- Investigating for ACE whether and how Accreditation data returns can be used to answer questions around funding and governance trends over time, and supplementing gaps with analysis from a range of other sources.
