|Abstract||The aim of the project is to develop a methodology to evaluate the social impact of community arts programmes and assess impact in key areas. It argues public funded community based arts projects were powerful catalysts for community development.
|Metodology||A methodology was developed for evaluating the social impact of 89 arts programmes in key areas. It was conducted a survey to 109 community participants from arts projects, plus 123 community members who had observed the projects. It asked people to rate the long-term value of the project for their community. Indicators for each outcome are suggested: • Building and developing communities • Increasing social capital • Activating social change • Developing human capital • Improving economic performance The author outlines diverse areas that community groups had been interviewed about and reports their responses.
