From Moment to Movement: How can one-off community events best increase longer term community action?  

Spirit of 2012 was founded partly with the belief that events have the potential to act as catalysts for sustained change.

The 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games were at one end of the scale, but we work with many organisations who deliver smaller scale, community events that lead to bigger things in their localities.

We are looking for a researcher to explore what kind of ingredients help turn one off moments into longer term movements in those areas.

The successful applicant will explore this topic with a small sample of our grantees.  

This is a reasonably small scale piece of research, with the emphasis on generating insights that support the strategic thinking of organisations looking for the best ways to encourage longer term change from their events. We expect what we learn from this research to inform our wider evaluation strategy over the next three years.
