Institute for Social Impact Research in the Performing Arts
The aim of the Institute is to understand and communicate the ways in which performing artists achieve positive impact in society.
Performing arts can have a positive impact on a wide variety of social issues, including health and wellbeing, inclusion, empowerment, community building, and activism. Socially-impactful performing arts projects often benefit marginalised or excluded groups, such as those in poverty, conflict or social disruption, people in prison, or those who are homeless. Community participatory projects play a particularly important role in delivering these outcomes. The Institute identifies Social Impact Research as a core part of Guildhall School’s future research output.
