Creating and Maintaining a Culture of Evaluation

Sunday, June 17, 9:00 am - 10:30 am

More and more, local arts agencies (and the rest of the arts sector) are being called upon to evaluate the impact of our work in inclusive and equitable ways. How can we create a culture of evaluation that recognizes and pushes against more tradition, non-inclusive ways of evaluating "quality," "impact," and "excellence?"

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn what a "culture of evaluation" is, and why it is important.
  2. Hear about a set of alternative ways of thinking about the impact and "value" of the arts to community life.
  3. Discuss how to make evaluation a manageable, useful exercise by scaling to what you'll have time for, identifying what you really need, and exploring partnerships and shared responsibility.
