Art for Social Change NOW Gathering Archive – Embedded Evaluation: Capacity Building for the Sector and Beyond

“Hosted by the International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC), this was the inaugural event of the Art for Social Change Network (ASCN), a new national network of community-engaged art for social change (ASC) artists and organizations. Right now, in every corner of Canada, community-engaged artists and organizations are nurturing new forms of collaborative creation, dialogue, partnerships, and action for positive change. At the gathering we explored important key questions: Who is doing the work? What are the current struggles and innovative solutions? How can we and how do we address issues of equity and justice? How are we rising to the critical challenges happening in the community-engaged arts landscape today?”

Session – Embedded Evaluation: Capacity Building for the Sector and Beyond

Session – Embedded Evaluation: Capacity Building for the Sector and Beyond – Why do evaluation? Who is it for? How to explore the perspectives of participants, community partners, funders and facilitating artists/ASC organizations? How to use qualitative, quantitative and/or arts-based approaches? How can we carry out this work in respectful and useful ways? Hosted by senior ASC leader, Seanna Connell (ON), this event brings together Dr. Annalee Yassi (BC), Dr. Kim van der Woerd and Dr. Marnie Badham (Australia) who will explore this sometimes-challenging element of our work in community-engaged arts.
