I gave a presentation yesterday at the NSW Public Libraries Association annual conference, 'SWITCH2015.' I talked about how to conduct 'meaningful measurement' in the libraries context. I have uploaded the presentation here (see the link, below) for those keen on seeing my meandering thought processes up close and personal.
Yesterday I gave a presentation at the Creative Victoria Expert Arts Panel session on evaluating arts impact. Along with me, Deakin Uni's Hilary Glow and Anne Kershaw presented about a recent evaluation they did for Vichealth on arts and wellbeing, and Mark Hogan from Regional Development talked about the Clunes Booktown regional transformation story. Once Creative Victoria upload the full session to the web I will upload a link. In the meantime, I have uploaded my powerpoint presentation here.
I will be presenting at the Creative Victoria Expert Arts Panel ‘Measuring What Matters - Evaluating Arts Impact’ on Wednesday 28 October, 3.25-5.00 pm at Treasury Theatre (Lower Plaza), 1 Macarthur St, East Melbourne.
The event is free but I think places might be limited, so for more information and to book, click here.
I will be talking about evaluation methods in the field of arts, culture and social inclusion projects.
