Activities per year
The research presented here is part of an on-going study being conducted through partnership between Queen's University Belfast (QUB), Voluntary Arts Ireland (VAI), and Mid and East Antrim Borough Council’s (MEABC) Culture, Leisure, and Tourism Service. Each partner has come together with the shared goal of developing a greater understanding of how local government in Northern Ireland might work to sustain and develop cultural infrastructure, specifically through building understanding of the cultural interests, activities and needs of local citizens. What has been learned thus far has implications for sustaining and developing not only the investment already made in the physical cultural infrastructure of local areas, but also in making stronger connections with the intangible infrastructure—networks, ideas and skills through participatory knowledge exchange. This policy briefing summarises these findings and concludes by indicating their relevance to key reforms currently underway within local and executive levels of government.
