Arts Education Webinar: The Past, Current and Future Needs of Youth Arts Organizations Using Data to Inform Program Impact

NEA Arts Education July 2016 Webinar

On July 13, 2016, the National Endowment for the Arts Arts Education staff hosted a webinar providing an overview to the Boston Youth Arts Evaluation Project (BYAEP), including the context and history of the project, how and why it was developed, and a review of the logic model framework and tools. Käthe Swaback, Program Director from Raw Art Works in Lynn, MA shared how BYAEP currently is being used, adapted and refined by RAW and other youth arts organizations nationwide. In addition, Julia Gittleman, a Boston-based consultant who focuses on performance measurement with non-profit organizations, shared how Boston-area youth arts organizations have come together to create the Youth Arts Impact Network, in order to establish and share best practices related to data gathering and measurement for youth-serving arts organizations. The Presentations were followed by a Q&A session.
