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.
Location: Stolen From Africa Office, Monsignor Fraser College, 2900 Midland Avenue, Youth Space (Gray Building)
RSVP: bit.ly/2Ef9cht
Facilitators: Fiona Scott, Independent research and evaluation consultant
Details: This workshop is for youth aged 13-29. Space for this workshop is limited so register today! Food and refreshments will be provided

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

Location: Dames Making Games office at Toronto Media Arts Centre, 32 Lisgar St, Toronto, ON M6J 0C9
(see full program schedule below)

CUE: 2018 Grant Cycle open! (Toronto)

« CUE is a radical arts initiative dedicated to supporting new generation artists who live and work on the margins.

Throughout history, some of the most innovative artwork has been created by artists who experience marginalization and face
systemic barriers, and who have been excluded by conventional arts and cultural institutions. We recognize that arts funding agencies have struggled to keep up with growing social, cultural, and economic inequality.

In response, CUE has designed an accessible funding program offering not only financial support for art projects, but also consultation in preparing project proposals, support throughout the production process, and opportunities for public exhibition.

Founded in 2008, to date CUE has provided over $300,000 to support the creation of more than 300 art projects in multiple disciplines.

GRANTS FOR NEW-GENERATION ARTISTS LIVING AND WORKING ON THE MARGINS
Apply for up to $1000 to produce a project in any discipline

Artists must meet with CUE before submitting an application.
DEADLINE TO APPLY: NOVEMBER 23

GRANTS ARE FOR ARTISTS WHO:
• Identify as new generation artists (29 years old or under) living and working on the margins in Toronto
• Work in any artistic discipline
• Have a solid idea for an art project that can be completed in 3 months, and can be exhibited or presented to the public in some way
• Demonstrate experience in their medium
• Have a track record of finishing projects and following through on goals
• Have not received funding from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, or Canada Council for the Arts, or other substantial arts funding
• Are not in a Masters program in a post secondary institution, and do not hold a Masters degree
• Meet with CUE before submitting an application
