Research Resources


The NCFA advocates for a better understanding of the value of the arts. We promote fairness in access to information and knowledge and work to amplify and substantiate this message.

We have a duty of care, on behalf of our members and supporters, to consider the quality and use of the current knowledge base in Ireland and the wider international research context.

The following resource links are indicative of the information available within Ireland and in the comparative cultures of Northern Ireland, United Kingdom, USA and Australia.

Links are organized by region/country and accompanying descriptions are drawn from the host websites. This resource list is in no way conclusive or definitive but it is intended to give an insight into current discourses and discussions surrounding the complex issue of cultural value.

Should there be resources that you would like to recommend for inclusion, please contact us with a short description, title and accurate url.

Help the NCFA continue to advocate for the arts in Ireland.
