  • Release date: 22 August 2017
The report aims to obtain the views of a wide range of cultural stakeholders participating in Fusion Partnerships.

It is based on findings from an online survey, sent to a sample of stakeholders from participating Fusion Partnership organisations, and qualitative interviews with cultural stakeholders.


Overall, participants were positive about Fusion Partnerships. Generally, any difficulties encountered by participants were felt to be outweighed by the benefits. The key benefits were seen to be:

  • developing and strengthening the links between stakeholders from different sectors
  • raising the profile of stakeholder’s organisations and making the case for culture to local authority and anti-poverty stakeholders in partnerships
  • targeting and engaging new ‘harder to reach’ groups living within deprived communities.
