Willis Newson, one of the UK’s leading arts and health consultancies, is delivering a programme of three online workshops exploring how to develop and use creative approaches to evaluation. Taking place in partnership with Engage, the workshops will run between 16 – 30 March 2022. 

Building on the Creative and Credible approach to evaluation, developed by Willis Newson and the University of the West of England, this programme provides participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to evaluate creatively as well as credibly.

Sharing ideas and practice, participants will explore ways in which creativity can reinvigorate existing evaluation methods including questionnaires, focus groups, feedback and monitoring.

Working collaboratively, you will co-produce creative solutions to real-world evaluation scenarios, ensuring that they are appropriate and credible as well as engaging and enjoyable.
