ARTS NSW ABORIGINAL ARTS & CULTURAL STRATEGY EVALUATION
The NSW Aboriginal Arts and Cultural Strategy (AACS) 2010-14, developed and implemented by Arts NSW, included a commitment to evaluation of the effectiveness of the strategy.
Lois Randall was engaged by Arts NSW in January 2016 to undertake the evaluation and write a report about the impacts and legacy of the AACS 2010-2014.
The evaluation included both quantitative and qualitative analysis:
· Review of data collected under the 8 measures across 4 result areas from acquitted projects funded by Arts NSW under the Strategy 2011-14;
· Analysis of data against the 2010 baseline established for measuring the effect of the Strategy; and
· Research into acquitted projects including stakeholder interviews and development of case studies relating to the four strategic directions of Artists, Visibility, Community and Jobs.
The report has been accepted by Arts NSW and will be released publicly in mid 2016.
