Art in the community undoubtedly enriches it and helps to shape its character but it is difficult to quantify just how much and in what way, which makes the job of finding funding that much harder. Vital communities, an action research project in its 5th year of a 15 year research study, based in Cambridge, aims to demonstrate the impact of the arts upon individual and community development and to investigate whether the arts have a positive impact on the aspirations, achievements and attitudes of communities across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The results of the study will prove interesting reading and for the first time measure the quantitative and qualitative impact of the arts. I am sure that the results will be no surprise to those of us who have our heart and soul in the artistic

community.
