ADESTE+ Lisbon Summer School "Empowering audiences, reimagining culture" is the first one of a series of 3 that will be developed in 2019 // 2020 // 2021, in the framework of the ADESTE+ project. It was from September 23 to 27, 2019 at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian.

How to you pull people from different sectors together to build an unknown outcome in 3 days? Started with seeing tweets from France and then wanting to get involved in something I didn’t really know what it was. It is something you have to experience to appreciate. I went to MuseoMix in France 2012 and even though didn’t understand language, knew the framework was something that could really remix and shake up museums!
The key idea was allowing other sectors to have input. For our first year, it was a little complicated getting a community but I called in favors from friends and paid them with cake and smiles. I knew they would get something out of it. Up until our first day, there was confusion but with the framework that allows for growth with some guidance the community was able to achieve a level of re-thinking they did not think would be possible. Since then we have done another MuseomixUK and rebranded to Open Community Lab to branch out to health care and other sectors.

Caos is community-oriented and artists-led initiative, with the aim to mediate between artists and communities in a participatory way.
Evaluation in participatory arts programmes
A selection of approaches, models and methods developed across Creative People and Places 2013-2016
Since the Creative People and Places (CPP) programme began in 2013, individual programmes have been developing a range of interesting evaluation approaches, models and tools.
Each CPP Place commissions a local evaluation, conducted by an external evaluator / agency to answer the main programme evaluation questions. The National Evaluation draws on these evaluations in the programme-level review.
The three programme evaluation questions driving the CPP National Evaluation are:
1. Are more people from places of least engagement experiencing and inspired by the arts?
2. To what extent was the aspiration for excellence of art and excellence of the process of engaging communities achieved?
3. Which approaches were successful and what were lessons learned?
This compendium presents a sample of these examples from 2013 to 2016 – offered and written by CPP directors and managers, critical friends, local evaluators and artists – to readers who may be thinking about their own evaluation in community contexts and participatory programmes.
