Arts Council of Wales | Research


What is the work of the Arts Council of Wales Research Unit?

The Arts Council of Wales Research Unit is part of the Investment and Funding Services Team. The Research Unit are responsible for commissioning ad hoc research and conducting a number of continuous surveys, the largest and most complex being the annual monitoring of activity by our revenue funded organisations, the Arts Portfolio Wales.

The overall aim of the research unit is to develop and implement a programme of research that provides:

  • a sound evidence base to support the Council's strategic policy development
  • information for use in advocating the value of the arts in Wales
  • information that assists arts organisations in developing strategic plans.
