CDRN Membership

Why Join Our Network?

The CDRN is run by a voluntary steering group and emerged from a need we all identified to:

  • improve confidence on data and research related skills and expertise in the sector;
  • to share good practice and experience of interacting with data and research issues;
  • and to offer a network of peer support and collegiality.

We want to protect collegiality, support and practice and we want to be able to share these freely with colleagues in publicly-funded institutions, or sole traders and limited companies that need help to deliver data and research, as much of this work is going out of house post-COVID-19.

Membership Criteria

  • Members must work in a public facing institution within the arts, cultural and heritage sector; or
  • Those operating as a Sole Traders or Limited Company must have been doing so less than 2 years and have previously worked in a public facing institution within the arts, cultural and heritage sector.
