Goethe Institut - Culture Works - Using evaluation to shape sustainable foreign relations
Cultural work is a central component of German foreign cultural and educational policy. It is based on an extended understanding of culture, which comprises not only the arts and high culture,
but also popular culture, everyday culture and other areas besides. Culture is understood as a dynamic, dialogic process, which develops irrespective of location and in a multitude of ways.
This approach implies to identify key premices and methods, to develop an impact model for evaluation and basic principles of the working approach and to think in terms of impacts' cycles.
