Research Projects

The Centre has been involved in several funded collaborative research projects. Our extensive programme of research focuses primarily on issues to do with the contemporary and historical challenges faced by the creative industries in Wales; how creative practitioners and communities can be supported to overcome these challenges; and the role the creative industries play in representing the nation and its diverse cultural identities.

Our research has helped to inform public debate about the creative industries in Wales and their artistic, social and economic contribution to the nation’s civic life. We have provided new insights for organisations and their users, including BBC Cymru WalesNational Theatre Wales, the Welsh Music Foundation and community radio stations in Wales and Laos.
