Durnin Research and DC Research are delighted that their longitudinal evaluation of Collecting Cultures has been published by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of its Dynamic Collections campaign.
From 2008 to 2019 the Heritage Fund invested more than £8million in 45 long-term collections acquisition projects through two rounds of Collecting Cultures. Jonathan Durnin and longstanding colleague Dr Stephen Connolly from DC Research began working on Collecting Cultures towards the end of the first round in 2012, and were appointed as evaluators for the second round in 2016.
