Evaluating Culture Workshop

An opportunity for professional development in the Murray region


Murray Arts have partnered with the Cultural Development Network (CDN) to host a one-day workshop in August for local government workers and cultural development professionals.

The CDN works to promote the cultural vitality of communities throughout Australia, largely through support of cultural development professionals. One of the organisation’s core objective is to encourage diverse and authentic community cultures to flourish through the support of art making in the community.

Presented by Kim Dunphy, the Research Program Manager of the Cultural Development Network Victoria, the  Evaluating Culture workshop will explore:

  • Current theory, relevant models and hands-on experience .
  • Ways to effectively plan and evaluation
  • Introduction of evidence-based approaches to planning and frameworks , specifically program logic and theory of change
  • Case studies drawn from real-world experience
  • Evaluation: its purpose, benefits and challenges
  • What is data? and how it can be collected?
  • A framework for outcome evaluation of cultural development programs


Kim Dunphey brings to the program a longstanding interest in the challenging issues of how arts participation and its outcomes can be measured.
