How can evaluation help capture the change that those working in social justice strive to realize? Learn new ways to think about, and evaluate, your organization’s outcomes.
Artists and community organizers strive to touch emotions, spark insight, and change behavior. Their work prompts people to think, feel, understand issues on a different level, and to act (or act differently). As programs often have long-term goals, how can nonprofits identify the important indicators and outcomes to measure the impact of their work along the way? This webinar will help funders, administrators, artists, and others learn about the difference that their work makes, and how to measure what matters to tell the story of their impact.
This webinar intertwines stories and principles from Suzanne Callahan’s evaluation work in the area of arts and social impact, with tools that participants can use after the webinar. In addition to drawing from Callahan’s own book on arts evaluation, as well as the work of evaluation thought leader, Michael Quinn Patton, stories will highlight Rha Goddess’s “Hip Hop Mental Health Project”. Participants will gain a better understanding of how change can be measured, learn ways to tailor measurement to meet their own needs, and discover evaluation methods that illustrate the profound change that they have on the communities they are dedicated to serving.
