A Creative Approach to Assessing Community Arts Practice
Leah Burns & Julie Frost
Burns and Frost provide a primer for arts-related evaluators wanting to more authentically explore and understand the work of community-grounded arts. Such arts activities are the very foundation of a creative society and Leah and Julie provide windows into alternative ways of making sense of this important work. Arts-informed Evaluation highlights the power of the arts for meaning-making associated ith the very acts of creation that are at the heart of arts programs across the continent. The text leads evaluators through a process that honours artistry and reflexivity, imagination and the practicalities of making programs work. This primer is a must for libraries of organizations and individuals who have responsibilities for assessment and program development in the arts.
