Webinar: Who and what is evaluation for? And when is it useful?

By Centre for Cultural Value


Why do we evaluate our work and who do we do it for? Is it to meet the expectations of funders and stakeholders or to assess a project’s success and capture the difference it makes? And are we missing a trick if we don’t use evaluation as an opportunity to enhance our practice and deepen our learning and critical reflection skills?

This webinar discusses and questions evaluation in the cultural sector and explores how we might be able to do and share it better, so collectively we can articulate the difference culture makes to people and to society.

Chaired by Anne Torreggiani, the Centre for Cultural Value's Co-Director and CEO of The Audience Agency, we’re also joined by artist Grace Ndiritu, who works collaboratively with museums across Europe, Hilary Jennings from the The Happy Museum Project that looks at how the museum sector can respond to the challenge of creating a more sustainable future, Holly Donagh, Director of Strategic Learning, Insight and Influence at Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Harpreet Kaur, consultant and project manager at Xtrax and Chris Batsford.

This event was part of our 'What value culture?' festival in November 2020.
