Workshop: Evaluation 101 (ArtReach, Toronto)

Are you running a project or program in your community? Do you want to better understand the reasons for and basics of evaluating your program? Wondering about the best ways to plan your evaluation activities to generate statistics and feedback about the effectiveness and success of your work?

Evaluation is an important, but sometimes overlooked part of our work in communities. Surveys, stories, art-based activities, and statistics are just some of the powerful evaluation tools we can use to measure the impacts of what we do. Used correctly, they demonstrate the benefits of our work to our communities, funders, and donors and help us better shape our programs into the future.

In this interactive workshop we will examine the process of evaluation and report writing, and explore creative strategies and tools for collecting the right data and sharing it with others and also demonstrate step by step how to use them to develop an evaluation plan. Workshop participants will look into different ways of measuring the impacts and successes of their own programs using strategies which include theory of change, and using outcomes, outputs and indicators, all while learning to create effective evaluation tools.

DETAILS:
Date: Tuesday, October 30, 2018
Time: Networking and food at 5:30pm, workshop runs 6:00pm-9:00pm.

Storygathering Workshop (Fixt Point, Toronto)

“Learn the art of audio storytelling.

At FIXT POINT, we’ve spent ten years creating community-based initiatives that connect people to the arts and their cultural heritage through audio storytelling and place-based performance. As access to recording and editing technologies proliferate, the medium is becoming democratized. But opportunities to access quality training are few and far between. FIXT POINT Arts & Media is piloting a new training program that will give young women and non-binary youth the knowledge and practical skills they need to produce high-quality, compelling audio stories, and teach them how to use the medium of audio storytelling to engage their communities in meaningful ways.

The two-week workshop combines hands-on experience with in-studio training. Participants will learn and practice the following skills:

  • community outreach
  • interview and recording techniques
  • narrative shaping
  • audio editing

Participants will have the opportunity to interview members of a Toronto community or neighbourhood of their choosing. At the end of the workshop, participants will have created a short audio piece from their own gathered source material.

Program Dates:
Cohort #1: November 13th – 17th & 20th -24th
Cohort # 2: December 4th – 8th & 11th – 15th

Workshop: Financial Management 101 (ArtReach, Toronto)

Are you running a community project or involved with a larger organization? Already an ace at event management, social media, or youth engagement, but run in the other direction when you have to deal with money? Want to know how to manage grant funding when it affects your taxes?

As artists and community planners we are fiercely dedicated to mastering our creative practice which sometimes tends to leave us putting our administrative and financial organization on the back burner. In this workshop we will look at how to budget, keep track of your finances and what records you should be keeping for taxes. We will also look at what you need to claim for your taxes, which forms you need to fill out, and understanding how different sources of income (like receiving a grant) can impact your taxes.

Participants will also get hands-on time with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and Google Sheets, supported by our expert facilitators who will show you how to get the most out of these powerful financial management tools!

Date: Wednesday, August 8th 2018
Time: Networking and food at 5:30pm, workshop runs 6:00pm-9:00pm.
