Understanding the drivers, impact and value of engagement in culture and sport

The aim of CASE is to use interdisciplinary research methods and analysis to inform the development of policy in culture and sport.

The Culture and Sport Evidence (CASE) programme is a three-year joint programme of research led by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in collaboration with the Arts Council England (ACE), English Heritage (EH), the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) and Sport England (SE).

CASE is closely linked to the Taking Part Survey, both in terms of using data from the survey and in using the definitions of the sectors implicit in the choice of activities and levels of engagement included in the survey.
