Are you running an ArtReach or other community based project or program in your community? Do you want to better understand the reasons for and basics of evaluating your program? Wondering about the best ways to plan your evaluation activities to generate statistics and feedback about the effectiveness and success of your work? Want tips on how to write a great report?
Evaluation is an important, but sometimes overlooked part of our work in communities. Surveys, stories, art-based activities, and statistics are just some of the powerful evaluation tools we can use to measure the impacts of what we do. Used correctly, they demonstrate the benefits of our work to our communities, funders, and donors and help us better shape our programs into the future.
In this interactive workshop we will examine the process of evaluation and report writing using live case study examples of real community, youth-led projects. The workshop will explore creative strategies and tools for collecting the right data and sharing it with others and also demonstrate step by step how to use them to develop an evaluation plan through the live case studies.
Workshop participants will look into different ways of measuring the impacts and successes of their own programs using strategies which include theory of change, and using outcomes, outputs and indicators, all while learning to create effective evaluation tools.
Finally participants will be taken step by step through the report writing process using the ArtReach final report template as a guideline.
