Cultural Impact Projects recognised as a High Impact Study in national report


The outstanding work of Katya Johanson and Hilary Glow has been recognised in the Australian Research Council's Engagement and Impact Assessment 2018-19. Cultural Impact Projects has been listed as a High Impact Study in the assessment, and we congratulate Katya and Hilary on their incredible work.

From the report -

Cultural Impact Projects research enriched cultural life in Victoria and had social and economic benefits by shaping policies (City of Yarra's Arts and Cultural Strategy, the Maribyrnong Festival City Policy 2013-2017 and Arts and Cultural Strategy 2013-2017) and initiatives of arts organisations and government funding agencies. Impacts include: 1) improving arts organisations' and funding bodies' strategies for audience evaluation; 2) informing local government policies on infrastructure development, project funding allocation, audience development and marketing to better meet audience expectations and needs, and; 3) strengthening the arts sector by improving professional and organisational capacity to engage with relevant research and with the cognate field of social innovation.
