Milk Crate Theatre, in partnership with a range of organisations operating in the community engaged arts space, and Social Ventures Australia, are undertaking a multiphase project to develop a shared outcomes framework. We will measure the social impacts of creative practice and then pilot the framework across a range of organisations. This project will take place over 4 phases.

"We believe a collective approach to impact measurement will provide community engaged arts organisations the opportunity to demonstrate their tremendous capacity and ability to create real change in people’s lives."

We held two sessions in Phase 1:

  • Session 1: We engaged with key community arts funders and a cross-section of arts organisations to understand existing funder priorities. We then held a 3 hour session with 12 organisations to learn more about current practices, and identify opportunities and aspirations for future phases of the project.

  • Session 2: We held an online presentation focussed on the high level insights from the first session, with input from funders and reflections from the project group.
