Art, Recognition and Social Science: Re-thinking (E)valuation

Added on Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

The Institute of Cultural Capital’s Kerry Wilson is delighted to co-host a research seminar exploring the politics of evaluation, in partnership with the AHRC-funded ‘Cultural Intermediation and the Creative Economy’ research programme. The seminar has been designed and developed by Professor Tim May, Centre for Sustainable Urban and Regional Futures (SURF) at the University of Salford, and will be led by Tim and Dr Dave O’Brien, City University London.

Art, Recognition and Social Science: Re-Thinking (E)valuation will invite delegates to debate the various challenges and opportunities in evaluating arts-based community interventions, including balancing the economic and political imperatives of funding bodies with the desire to establish recognition and reputation with a like-minded community of interest, according to shared notions of practice, identity and value. Delegates will hear from peers with experience and expertise in community-based arts practice and evaluation, and then participate in group discussions on emerging central issues.

The seminar will take place on Friday 16th May 2014 at Liverpool Central Library.

Organisers would like to acknowledge the support of the Arts and Humanities Research Council for this project and associated seminar series, via the cross-council Connected Communities research programme.
