EVALUATION IN ACTION! Understanding Long-term & Cumulative EffectsJune 27, 2013 at 3:00 PM EDT, 2:00 PM CDT, 1:00 PM MDT, 12:00 PM PDT
The social effects of arts programs often accrue after project timeframes or grant periods end. They are often catalytic to other effects, for example, creative work can connect and deepen relationships which in turn build capacity and spur new community action. When projects, programs, and organizational work are grounded in place over time, cumulative effects can manifest. Through stories of multiple projects, including the Dance Exchange's Shipyard Project in Portsmouth NH, participants will look at how creative work can create conditions that make other outcomes possible. You'll learn how to identify plausible precursors or indicators of long-term outcomes that can be measured in the short-term. Visualizations of effects over time will be presented to illuminate these points as well as suggest ways of presenting your own cumulative, long-term, or invisible effects.
