Let's make it public
An information paper prepared by members of the Creative Communities Network (Australia) with funds from the Local Government Research & Development Scheme. It was published in July 2012.
Local Government includes complex and interrelated functions relating directly to culture and the wellbeing of residents, the environment and the economy - on a local, as well as on a State, national and global scale. It also plays a significant role in funding and delivering cultural activities in Australia. In 2009-10, Local Government funding for cultural activities across Australia was $1,197.7m, which was 18% of total cultural funding provided by all levels of government. Building capacity and knowledge in the area of Culture will ensure Local Government makes well informed and value-for-money decisions.
This report is a summary of the results of the monitoring and evaluation activities carried out during the CONNECT over a period of 36 months from 1/01/2017 – 31/12/2019.
It is an attempt to narrate what has been happening, it probably reflects the complexity of the project and what we have achieved, less all the encounters, the serendipity moments, the tough parts and the good parts, that everyone involved from the project consortium contributed to.
We thank all the directly involved 165 beneficiaries: 63 students from Arts/Heritage/Culture Masters’ courses, 61 practitioners from 21 museums, 18 theatres, 6 cultural centers, 5 festivals, 4 orchestras, 3 libraries, 1 historical archive and 12 other types of cultural enterprises from Denmark, Italy, Poland, Spain and the UK. In addition, also 41 mentors, expert in audience development and cultural management, to support the students and practitioner during the learning programme and all the other stakeholders that supported us through this journey.
The twin track programme reflects the density and the diversity of the cultural sector across Europe, which is seen as a valuable aspect of the sector and the project.
This report has been bone By Melting Pro in collaboration with the external evaluator DISAMIS.
When applying for a European grant, most of the time you are likely required to define a quality assurance and evaluation strategy to guarantee that the project will reach the expected goals. This guide will help you reach those goals and keep your partners and stakeholders motivated, even if they have been part of the design process. From the idea design to the implementation, each project is a learning practice. Monitoring and evaluation are essential elements of this process. Both should be seen as an integral part of the process and not an add-on.
This toolkit is aimed at sharing an approach to monitoring and evaluation by suggesting using creative games and visual techniques along with standard monitoring and evaluation tools.
The exercises in this toolkit have been sourced from many people that have inspired us. Some are approaches that are familiar and it is difficult to know who invented them. We hope that this guide will serve as tools to anyone in charge for managing European projects or any kind of project and hopefully they will help you to tell the story of your project.
We extend our gratitude to all of the organisations and individual who have supported our project along the way.
