What is to be done with the arts?

A public talk hosted by John Hansard Gallery. Full info here.

Professor Julian Meyrick (Flinders University, Australia) will be introduced Laboratory Adelaide, a research project based in South Australia looking at the problem of evaluating cultural organisations and events. Since 2013, the project has investigated principles-based approaches to value reporting that emphasises integrated narrative, multiple time horizons, informing context, direct experience, and meaningful language use, as against “the metric tide” of abstract, quantitative data gathering.

Following introductions from Dianna Djokey (John Hansard Gallery) and Dan Ashton (Transforming Creativity), Julian offered suggestions for principles for assessment and evaluation and explored ongoing conversations with public administration, environmentalists, and science communicators. This was followed by responses by Dr Ronda Gowland-Pryde and a group discussion.
