I was back in London on Thursday to take part in the Making Culture Work event at the RSA. This was the third of three events organised by Mandy Barnett (MB Associates), Pippa Jones (Create Gloucester) and Jocelyn Cunningham (Arts & Society), following sessions at the Manchester Museum and Bristol Watershed. The starting point for these events was the feeling that, despite years of discussion and individual pockets of high profile work there still isn’t a good enough case for the public value of arts and culture. On Thursday we discussed why we evaluate and who we evaluate for. We identified innovative examples of best practice that make new sense of evaluation in our increasingly open, networked and co-produced world. Finally we considered the potential for a broad framework (or frameworks) to explore in one place the range of value we create in organisations and in local areas – social, economic, environmental and cultural.
