Evaluation for Arts, Health and Wellbeing
The potential contribution of arts to health and wellbeing is increasingly recognised by policy makers and those who fund and commission local services. Recent initiatives such as cultural commissioning and social prescribing mean that arts and artists can contribute to meeting local needs through innovative practice, projects and programmes. In order to engage with these exciting agendas, those providing arts activities to support health and wellbeing are increasingly required to provide robust evidence of impact.
Gathering the right evidence can seem challenging to those unfamiliar with the language of healthcare, medicine or social sciences. This two workshop series aims to demystify evaluation, helping participants to identify suitable evaluation approaches, outcome measures and impact assessment tools for their work. It is aimed at arts practitioners and arts managers as well as healthcare professionals, policy makers and commissioners.
This workshop is aimed at people who have completed Workshop 1 or have some experience of evaluation. During the workshop participants will consider the evaluation needs of an arts project or programme in more detail. There will be an opportunity to develop a logic model and a theory of change for a real world project, with input and feedback from experienced evaluators. The workshop will enable participants to develop a clear outcomes framework to guide evaluation activities as well as strengthening monitoring procedures.
