In November 2016 Liverpool City Council commissioned Collective Encounters to research the social benefit and impact on communities of the Culture Liverpool Investment Programme (CLIP) 2015/2016. The contents and findings in this report are mainly drawn from existing data held by LCC and research interviews conducted with a small number of arts organisations.

The limitations of the available data and time constraints means this report does not reflect the full social impact or benefit to communities of cultural investment in Liverpool nor every arts organisation’s offer. But it does offer an overview of the ways in which Liverpool’s arts organisations are working with communities to achieve positive social impacts and illustrates the range and breadth of activity.
