The second instalment in our collaboration with Onca, this workshop will be led by Bridget McKenzie (a researcher and evaluator of cultural and ecological initiatives) exploring the topic of evaluation or rather, new forms of evaluation. If you get funding, you have to do evaluation. Even if you don’t get funding, evaluation is useful to help you reflect, improve and share what works.
This workshop seeks to develop a new, more integrated and positive framework for evaluating cultural and ecological practice. The key concept of the framework is thrivability, aiming for more generative, biodiverse, mutual, creative and sustainable communities. It will explore and play with words and pictures to help define ‘thrivability’, and discuss how we can use evaluation to better advocate and spread our practice.
