How does it all add up? Evaluation is an important aspect of any social practice. It provides valuable feedback for an artist wishing to hone their craft, and is a necessary part of funding proposals. To conclude the series, this conversation will introduce the basics of program evaluation and how it helps create meaningful connection between artists and their audiences.
MAKE SOME PLACE is a series of five interactive workshops that examine ‘creative placemaking’ as it relates to artists and their practice. By shedding light on the abundance of increasingly available resources and funding opportunities, the workshops are designed to empower artists as they find new ways of engaging communities by integrating arts and culture into community building initiatives.
The series features moderators, artists, scholars and social entrepreneurs. Each speaker is paired with an artist offering a more indepth dialogue. Together, they provide insight into social practice work and how urban areas benefit from intentional inclusion of the arts and culture as a means to enriching the urban landscape. The audience is also invited to participate in the conversation during each session for a truly immersive experience.
Organized and facilitated by CUE's 2016 Public Programming Fellows, Jordan Dyniewski and perryne lee poy lokhandwala.
Supported by the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92 and The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
