Add the Arts-Based Data Collection course to your calendar

The Arts-Based Methods for Evaluation: Beginner Course is an exciting 4-week course providing a glimpse into arts-based methods. Practicing evaluators will learn how to use arts-based techniques to:

  1. facilitate engaging client meetings;
  2. elicit data;
  3. practice reflexivity; and,
  4. collaborate with clients and interdisciplinary teams.

The course will cover four methods: photography, drawing, collage, and poetry. With hands-on activities, real-world examples, rich group discussions, and opportunities for reflection, learners will gain a clear understanding of when, how, and why to integrate arts methods into their own evaluation practice.

Facilitators and arts-based evaluators, Maya Lefkowich and Jennica Nichols from AND implementation, help learners bring creative strategies into their work. Each 2-hour session will take place online on Thursday’s from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST from March 24 to April 14, 2022.
