Lincolnshire Diversity in the Arts: Research and Development is an Arts Council England funded project, undertaken by the University of Lincoln, aimed at exploring ways to develop cultural/artistic diversity in rural England, by taking Lincolnshire as a case study. The project commenced on 01 April 2016 and completed on 12 November 2017. The project was co-directed by 1) Dr Arya Madhavan, Senior Lecturer, University of Lincoln and 2) Dr Sreenath Nair, Senior Lecturer, University of Lincoln.

The project:
1. Produced and toured an Edinburgh Fringe Award-winning (1982) Indian play, Charandas Chor (Charandas Chor: The Honest Thief) in selected arts centres around Lincolnshire and studied its impact among the audience using qualitative and quantitative analytical methods.
2. Organised a one-day symposium bringing together cultural and community leaders as well as artists in an event of artistic exchange, around the theme of diversity.
3. Analysed the cultural strategies employed by Tara Arts, London; Black Country Touring, West Bromwich; Kali Theatre, London; Yellow Earth, London; as well as two artists, Shane Shambhu (a British Asian dancer and choreographer) and Ni Made Pujawathi (a South East Asian dancer and choreographer) in developing their rural audience.
