Understanding the impact of engagement in culture and sport

This study considers, amongst other things, 'What is the impact of young people's participation in structured arts activities on their learning outcomes?'

The Culture and Sport Evidence (CASE) programme was set up by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in 2008, in collaboration with the sector-leading non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs): Arts Council England (ACE), English Heritage (EH), Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) and Sport England (SE). The programme aims to generate strategic evidence that will be used to inform the deployment of public funds to maximise engagement in sport and culture, and the value citizens in England receive from that engagement.

This study is a useful tool to frame your projects and make a case for using the arts to acheive a variety of learning outcomes.
