Cultural Evaluation: measure the impact of your programs


Learn how to measure the impact of your arts and cultural projects through a tailored cultural evaluation program at The University of Melbourne's Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences.

As the City of Whittlesea, past participants of our cultural evaluation program will attest, we will equip you with the tools you need to measure the impact of your arts and cultural engagement.

Through units focusing on policies, programs and potential issues specific to your company, we will teach you how to undertake meaningful evaluation, giving you the necessary skills to gather evidence often demanded by key stakeholders, and the power to create more empirically-based project plans for the future.
