Project Synopsis

This AHRC project explores ways of evaluating and enhancing the legacy of the Connected Communities (hereafter CC) programme by investigating and reflecting on the impacts that four projects funded within this programme have had in both in the communities with whom they were conducted and can have in new community settings, both in the UK and beyond. It explores these legacies in terms of methodological approaches, cultural outputs or artefacts, and partnerships, drawing on and developing a contextualist three dimensional model of change advanced by Pettigrew (1985, 2011).
