Are you struggling with demands for evaluation and metrics? Do you want to better understand what is working and what is not working for your organization and track progress towards your goals? ARTS Action Research has been developing assessment systems with arts organizations that reflect the values of the sector and are practical for smaller capacity organizations to implement. In this workshop, we will introduce assessment strategies and techniques that small to mid-sized organizations can integrate into their planning and organizational activities. We consider quantitative and qualitative assessment and the value of using storytelling to convey meaning and impact. Participants will learn how to use assessment tools, create assessment plans, add new assessment practices to their work and analyze and integrate data to support learning and change.

Anne Dunning joined the ARTS Action Research team in 2004, after having served as the Administrative Director at the Danny Grossman Dance Company in Toronto. In addition to her work at AAR, she has chaired the National Council of the Canadian Dance Assembly and the Board of Trustees of Dance/USA, participated on the George Cedric Metcalf Foundation's Strategic Initiatives Advisory Committee and been a guest lecturer at Humber College, the University of Toronto and New York University. Anne has a BSc in biology from McGill University in Montreal.
