LATEST CONDOS – for purchase (£12 / €15 each) / free to Connexus members
- 015: Getting There… This ConDo analyses the latest Culture programme results across all eligible countries. It highlights the countries with the most projects, the most co-organisers, the highest success rates, the highest share of projects compared to their population share, and it lists all successful projects. It also shows that the UK in particular had a good year.
- 014: Rating Culture & Creativity – or not. This ConDo analyses the various key strategy documents that have been written in England by the DCLG and the 39 LEPs which set out the priorities for the allocation of the European Structural & Investment Funds 2014-2020. This analysis has looked at what these documents reveal about their commitment to the arts, culture, heritage and creative industries. The results make for depressing reading…
- 013: All Good Citizens (except perhaps in the UK). This ConDo provides an analysis of the results of the Europe for Citizens programme from 2007-2013, and for the first round of the new programme, in the first half of 2014. Good news for Hungary and Slovakia – but Spain and the UK have not done well.
- 012: Fewer. Bigger. Better? This Condo provides an analysis of the results of the First Call for Projects for the EU Creative Europe Culture Programme 2014. The report indicates a reasonable success rate for large projects, but very low overall and for small projects – and a major shift in emphasis from small to large projects, compared with the previous programme.
- 011: Good for Slovenia! This ConDo provides an analysis of the results for every eligible country for all the project strands of the EU Culture programme 2007-2013. It analyses success rates and also compares each country’s share of successes with that country’s share of the total population of all eligible countries, to give a useful indicator of how well each country did. It also analyses the most successful artform areas and themes.

010: Scoring the goals! … Arts and Culture in Brazil. This ConDo provides a “snapbook” (a combination of snapshot and scrapbook) of arts and culture in Brazil, and is produced to tie in with the World Cup 2014. This “snapbook” contains a brief historical overview, a summary of the culture scene in the two biggest cities, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, a selection of interesting recent news items and tweets, some extracts from a recent report on the cultural and creative industries in Brazil, and selected links for more information.
009: Top Scores? Analysing successful UK applications to the EU Culture programme. This ConDo analyses the scores of recent successful UK applications to the EU Culture programme across the various criteria.

008: World Cities Culture Report: Bringing data into the urban cultural policy conversation. This report provides a summary of some of the key issues contained in the recent World Cities Culture Report which covers 12 of the world’s key cities – Berlin, Istanbul, Johannesburg, London, Mumbai, New York, Paris, Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. This summary has been written by BOP Consulting, authors of the full report.
007: Regional Disparities in Support for Heritage in England. How the heritage assets of the South West of England are disadvantaged… By Keith Hackett. This report provides an analysis of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) across England and, by comparing actual spend with alternative mechanisms for allocation the available funds (e.g. by population or area), suggest that the South West of England is currently particularly disadvantaged.
006: EU Culture Programme: Strand 1.3.5 Successful Projects with Third Countries 2007-2012. This special ConDo provides both a summary analysis of all successful projects funded by strand 1.3.5 of the EU Culture funding programme in the years 2007-2012 inclusive, plus a lengthy appendix with specific details of each project. This is essential information for anyone interested in applying to the final deadline of this funding strand, in May 2013 – for which applicants need partners in Australia or Canada as well as three partners from different European countries.
005: Can crowdfunding become a major source of revenue for the culture and creative industries? This ConDo, prepared by BOP Consulting, summarises the potential and pitfalls of this approach to fundraising, and provides some initial guidance for those interested.
004: Hungarian Independent Performing Arts: The Cuts – The Story So Far… by Márton Gulyás, edited by Geoffrey Brown.
003: Heritage Lottery Fund: Learning Outcomes & Value for Money, by Keith Hackett. This ConDo has been prepared to disseminate the results of discussions with the UK Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and four of its funded projects. These discussions were prompted because the author could not identify any published comparative quantitative learning outcomes generated by projects in receipt of HLF funds. This ConDo therefore begins to explore and provide quantitative information in respect of learning outcomes achieved by a selected number of HLF supported projects. The projects examined have been chosen because they have already been identified as exemplar case-studies on the HLF website.
