Abstract:

This practical and comprehensive guide from 2002 is to provide a resource for community arts practitioners to use when they evaluate community arts projects. It also aims to help build a body of evidence about the work of the community arts sector, by using a consistent and structured research framework. It explains the key stages and elements of effective evaluation and provides some useful samples and templates.

There is a growing recognition of the social and community well-being outcomes of community arts projects. This guide is designed to be as flexible as possible, so that it can be used by the wide variety of organisations involved in the community arts and so that it can cover the range of community arts projects. The guide provides a comprehensive base for undertaking evaluations. The process outlined in the guide can be followed through sequentially. Alternatively, the process, tools and suggestions can be amended and refined to suit the specific needs of various projects and organisations.
