Research consultants appointed for Culture Night

Following a successful Culture Night which generated a national shared night of cultural experiences, the Arts Council is now entering a research phase to help inform Culture Nights of the future.

The Arts Council is delighted to confirm that consultants Janice McAdam, Heather Maitland and Annette Nugent have been appointed to carry out an evidence review, research and consultation on Culture Night on behalf of the Arts Council and its partner stakeholders. 

A key outcome from this research will be recommendations on the future vision, mission and goals of Culture Night, aligned to Making Great Art Work and other national policy objectives on culture, creativity and community. The research will be carried out between October 2020 and March 2021. If you have any queries on this project, don’t hesitate to get in touch: culturenight@artscouncil.ie.
