Evaluating your Arts Project


It all seemed to go well but how do we know if our project was really a success? Evaluation is not something we just do at the end of the project but rather a process that takes place throughout helping us set benchmarks and anticipate and respond to problems. Good evaluation using the right tools can make your organisation more confident and effective, helping motivate staff and communicate with funders.


The day will cover the following topics.

What is evaluation and why might it be important to your group?

The benefits of evaluation, what it should demonstrate and to whom.

The key stages in evaluating a project.

Outcomes versus Outputs.

The different evaluation tools, and their strengths and weaknesses.
