Workshop to focus on evaluating arts programs

The N.H. State Council on the Arts will offer a free workshop for arts educators and arts program leaders interested in assessing the effectiveness of their arts programs, with a focus on improving their grant applications and funding proposals.

“Evaluating Your Arts Programs: An Introduction” will take place at the Plymouth State University Graduate Center in Concord on May 15 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Evaluation can serve as a valuable learning tool. This workshop will include an introduction to evaluation methods, an overview of the Logic Model and small group work. Maren Brown, co-editor of “Fundamentals of Arts Management,” will be the main presenter. Attendees are encouraged to bring materials with them that illustrate their programs or project, along with their current evaluation materials.

Project leaders, arts educators, school administrators, afterschool and summer program team leaders, teachers and teaching artists are encouraged to attend.

There is no cost to participate but preregistration is required.

The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts is a publicly funded agency within the New Hampshire Department of Cultural Resources. It began in 1965 with legislation designed “to insure that the role of the arts in the life of our communities will continue to grow and play an ever more significant part in the education and welfare of our citizens.” Funding comes from state appropriations, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Conservation License Plate fund.
