How do Arts and Culture Make a Difference? Webinar

01 May 2018

Animating Democracy’s Continuum of Impact Guide defines six families of social and civic outcomes that artists and their partners commonly aspire to and achieve through creative work. These outcome families articulate ways the arts contribute to making change happen. This webinar introduces the guide as a practical resource to help articulate clear and realistic outcomes that can guide project design and define indicators or evidence of change that can be observed and measured.
