Community research, evaluation report and design
Cathedral Collections: Unlocking Spiritual Capital was a 3-year project that increased knowledge about and access to York Minster’s collection of
over 300,000 objects. The learning from the project was shared with the 43 cathedrals in England.
As a fully-funded project, an evaluation report was required. Eglingtoun Consulting approached us to team up and review the project’s process
from objective to outcome.
A well-designed evaluation report was completed, with recommendations for how similar projects in the future could have even greater impact.
"We saw this as a great opportunity to deeply understand the impact York Minster had made over and above the original objectives. To build a greater story about the project, we talked with community groups and completed case studies with core management and researchers." – Amanda Taylor
An unintended yet valuable outcome of the project was highlighted by our research: the increased involvement by community groups at the Cathedral. This social value was exciting to York Minster and will be included as a core objective for future projects.
We’d like to thank York Mister for choosing to work with us on this project.
