Barkley, Ellise Jane-Ann (2016) An integrated approach to evaluation: A participatory model for reflection, evaluation, analysis and documentation (the 'READ' model) in community arts. Professional Doctorate thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

The research focuses on the development and critical review of the READ model, a dynamic and rigorous model for evaluation of community arts. The model's innovation lies in the integration of four key appraisal and learning strategies- Reflection, Evaluation, Analysis and Documentation (READ) - to cater for the multi-faceted demands of creative community partnership initiatives. Positioned within the contemporary debate on cultural value and impact measurement, the research contributes to the discourse on effective community arts evaluation and offers an integrated, stakeholder-oriented model of relevance to the Creative Industries, and the fields of evaluation, cultural development, project management and sustainability.
