Introduction to Creative & Credible: How to Evaluate Arts, Health and Wellbeing Outcomes
Introduction to Creative & Credible: How to Evaluate Arts, Health and Wellbeing Outcomes will explore key principles and methodologies for evaluating arts for health and wellbeing programmes, examining the opportunities and challenges linked to embedding evaluation best practice appropriately, creatively and robustly.
Led by Professor Norma Daykin and Willis Newson Director Jane Willis, this one day introductory workshop will examine each phase of the Creative and Credible evaluation cycle, from planning through to dissemination, responding to participants’ questions and providing guidance on when and how to use different evaluation approaches, methods and tools. The training day is appropriate for those new to arts, health and wellbeing evaluation as well as to those with research and evaluation experience who want to deepen their knowledge of evaluating wellbeing outcomes. It is aimed at arts practitioners, arts and health producers and managers, evaluators and organisations seeking to develop a wellbeing focus as part of their work.
This one-day workshop offered by Willis Newson and the Royal Society of Public Health is part of the arts health and wellbeing CPD Programme, Creative and Credible. The programme builds on the Economic and Social Research Council funded research project with University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, led by Professor Norma Daykin and Willis Newson Director Jane Willis, which aims to support best practice in evaluation in arts, health and wellbeing.
