Project evaluation may be more important now than ever. It can drive public and funder support, better, more equitable decisions, and most importantly success. David B. Pankratz, Ph.D., an expert on evaluation for cultural projects guest hosted a webinar with The National Consortium for Creative Placemaking April 21 that explored how well- crafted evaluation can help creative collaborators thrive even during the pandemic.
Evaluators and project leaders from as far away as Athens, Greece and Ottawa, Canada weighed in during the live event, and we recorded the audio. Click below to hear the recording. Or download it to listen on your favorite podcast platform.
Dr. Pankratz is on the steering committee of the Cultural Research Network and recently retired as Research & Policy Director for the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council where he conducted research for diverse audiences on the impacts of the arts & culture, racial equity and arts funding, the health of the arts and culture sector, and the working lives of artists. He is also an instructor in the Certificate in Creative Placemaking program hosted jointly by NCCP and the New Hampshire Institute of Art and Design at New England College.
