The team here at Culture Republic are the people who make things happen. We put our diverse skills and experience to good use for you. Take a look below.
We work with people like you across Scotland who want to grow. We help them to understand who their audiences are, who they could be and how to reach them. My role is to provide the vision and leadership to deliver that mission.
All of us develop and deliver research projects which help cultural organisations understand who their audiences are, who they could be, and how to reach them.
I always say that the thing that makes me a good researcher is that I’m a naturally curious person. I lead the development of our economic impact studies.
I’ve got a strong grounding in how learning and outreach links with engagement. Based in Edinburgh I’m our local expert on the festivals.
I’m our in-house expert on disability access and especially the Equalities Act, and have a background in policy-relevant research.
I am a trained economist with background in statistics and applied research. Before Culture Republic, I worked for the Scottish Government’s data team.
I’m our in-house SIMD expert and I also developed our Scottish schools database. My favourite part of my job is challenging people’s perceptions with the results and insights proven from our research projects.
I bring an artist’s perspective to the team. (I make unusual and experimental music in my spare time.) I've got a decade’s experience in research in public policy and in the private sector.
