This IETM toolkit aims to guide you through the key steps of evaluation, whether you have chosen to do it yourself or if a funder or decision-maker asks you to do so and provides you with pre-conceived tools.

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 ?»
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.
ixia is England’s public art think tank. In 2004, ixia commissioned OPENspace, the research centre for inclusive access to outdoor environments based at the Edinburgh College of Art and Heriot-Watt University, to research ways of evaluating public art (see link below). Much of the content of this practical Guide has been informed by that academic research. However, the Guide’s emphasis and content has also been shaped by feedback from ixia’s Evaluation Seminars and fieldwork conducted by ixia and consultants who have used ixia’s ‘Evaluation Toolkit’. The present guide is the 2014 edition.
