Guide pratique > Fondation Daniel & Nina Carasso > Auto-évaluer l'impact social de projets artistiques

Ce guide méthodologique a pour objectif d’aider les acteurs du champ culturel à identifier et à évaluer l’impact social généré par leurs projets. Il a été conçu dans une logique d’auto-évaluation: la démarche d’évaluation est définie et mise en œuvre par la structure elle-même. Ce guide a été élaboré à partir de la dé- marche expérimentale d’évaluation et de capitalisation de l’Appel à projets Art & Territoire menée par la Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso avec 20 porteurs de projet et accompagnée par le cabinet Nuova Vista entre 2014 et 2016. Les 20 projets soutenus apportent une réponse concrète à la question évaluative : «Comment une démarche artistique exigeante peut-elle contribuer au vivre ensemble sur un territoire ?»
