CultureCase is an experiment in research communication. It aims to bridge the gap between academic research and its potential users and beneficiaries, by translating academic research into a form that is easily accessible by practitioners and advocates in the cultural sector.
CultureCase was developed following wide consultation with the cultural and academic sectors. We have drawn on the expertise of both academic and cultural sector advisers who have steered the creation of this pilot site.
Unless stated otherwise, the content on this site is authored and edited by James Doeser, a freelance researcher and writer working with the Cultural Institute, King’s College London. James has a PhD from University College London and spent three years working in the research team at Arts Council England. CultureCase is increasingly moving to a multi-authored format by developing a cohort of researcher-writers drawn from the Cultural Institute’s Knowledge Exchange Associates.
