We need to talk about the E-word
We know it’s tough, but we need to talk about the E-word.
The Centre for Cultural Value is launching a set of cultural evaluation principles in October and we need your help for a film we’re making.
When the Centre was first set up, we held consultation sessions around the UK and the impetus to develop a set of principles came out of what we heard at these events. The principles have been co-produced with a working group of 46 representatives from across the cultural sector. The principles aren’t prescriptive but will inform how evaluation is carried out and used across the cultural sector. They are a starting point for a conversation and debate, and over the course of the next year people will be able to feedback and further refine them.
We are making a short film to support the launch of the work we’ve been doing with the sector around these principles.
The film will feature cultural practitioners and the academic sector, talking about their thoughts, feelings, challenges and frustrations with evaluation.
The film will be shared on our website, social media channels and YouTube channel.
What do I need to do?
If you are happy to be featured, we would like you to film yourself answering the quick questions below.
- What springs to mind when someone says ‘evaluation’?
- What are some of the biggest frustrations or challenges with evaluation in your own practice?
We’d like to capture your natural reactions to these questions so please don’t worry about scripting your answers.
If you are interested please get in touch with the centre by emailing Mikey firstname.lastname@example.org to get a full brief and find out how to submit your footage.
