Some of your thoughts on evaluation…
We know talking about evaluation isn’t easy.
But recently we invited you to share your views with us about evaluation, for a short film to help us launch the work we’ve been doing with the sector to co-create a set of evaluation principles.
You might have seen the teaser version of the film on social media. Watch the video below to hear more about what people had to say, including their thoughts, feelings, challenges and frustrations about ‘the E word’.
A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the film: Matt Addicott from Glasgow East Arts, Nicky Goulder from Create, Anni Raw, a freelance evaluator and Ruth Sapsed from Cambridge Curiosity and Imagination.
On 13 October we will be introducing our cultural evaluation principles, which have been co-created over the last year working with a group of cultural professionals including those who do evaluation, those who use it, and those whose work is evaluated.
Find out more about this event, and keep an eye on our website next week for the launch of the principles.
The principles are a sharing of ideas to inform how evaluation is carried out and used within the sector, and they are very much the start of the conversation.
Get involved with the debate – let us know you think of the film and/or evaluation in your practice, using the hashtag #TheEWord on Twitter and LinkedIn. You can also email us your thoughts and reflections at firstname.lastname@example.org
