About the Event

Harnessing creativity to deliver rich, enjoyable, meaningful evaluation

This programme of three online workshops explores how to develop and use creative approaches to evaluation with confidence and credibility.

Series of 3 dates: Wednesday 16 March, Wednesday 23 March, Wednesday 20 March

  • Are you frustrated with traditional evaluation methods?
  • Do you get poor response rates from questionnaires?
  • Are you finding it hard to engage participants in evaluation?
  • Do you feel that the evaluation tools you are using don’t properly reflect the creative nature of your work?
  • Building on the Creative and Credible approach to evaluation, this programme provides participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to evaluate creatively as well as credibly.

We will share ideas and practice, exploring ways in which creativity can reinvigorate existing evaluation methods including questionnaires, focus groups, feedback and monitoring.

Working collaboratively, we will co-produce creative solutions to real-world evaluation scenarios, ensuring that they are appropriate and credible as well as engaging and enjoyable.

About the facilitator

The workshops will be led by Willis Newson Director Jane Willis, a creative producer, mentor, trainer and evaluator with more than 25 years’ experience of working across a range of arts, health settings and wellbeing settings. Jane has been instrumental in setting up a number of arts health and wellbeing organisations and has worked with more than 32 NHS Trusts and Health Boards to produce inspiring creative programmes that improve health and wellbeing.
