Here you'll find details of seminars and events we've held to discuss findings from our research.


  • 12th March, Beyond Impacts: Lessons and legacies from researching Liverpool’s European Capital of Culture

    Our five year research programme culminated with a major international conference on the 12th March 2010 to officially launch our final report on the impacts of Liverpool hosting the European Capital of Culture title in 2008. Beyond Impacts provided a forum for some 150 delegates to discuss the current state of longitudinal impact research and its implications for policy, practitioner and academic environments. We were joined by top representatives from Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Arts Council England and Research Councils UK to debate the key lessons emerging out of the Impacts 08 programme and their future application across sectors. There was also an opportunity to hear members of the Impacts 08 team discuss tested methodologies and key projects that are relevant for the assessment of the London 2010 Games and the recently launched UK City of Culture Programme.
