Program assessment, planning, and evaluation
We created an Instrument Drive Guide for civic organizations interested in developing musical instrument drives in their local communities based on lessons learned from WQXR’s ambitious drive in New York City.
In 2016, we worked with the foundation’s Detroit Program to conduct a formative evaluation of the Kresge Artists In Detroit program at its 10-year point. The evaluation encompassed the Kresge Artist Fellowships program, Creative Many’s professional practices program, and ArtX: Detroit, a festival featuring Kresge Fellows’ work. We wrote the final report detailing our findings.
We completed multiple projects with Arts Midwest’s ArtsLab program, beginning with a set of case studies documenting the program’s impact over time. We also helped design and deliver an ArtsLab program sequence for a cohort of regional orchestras and participated in ArtsLab’s regional cities’ cohort as a social media workshop presenter.
With Dot Connector Studio, we evaluated the foundation’s investments in podcasting and on-demand audio through the lens of Knight grantees, then wrote the report, From Airwaves to Earbuds.
