Like every other research discipline, art needs to find effective ways of assessing its impact. This presentation will examine how the reach and significance of the impact of fine arts research can be measured. How can changes in what and how people think and feel be measured? How does the assessment process account for the differences in impact for audience members due to their individual experiences? This is particularly challenging for an art exhibition or similar public display or performance, which is open to the public and hence where the audience reached is not defined or known. The research analyses a selection of impact case studies within the subject area of “Studies in Creative Arts and Writing” from the United Kingdom’s Research Excellence Framework 2014, to identify the evidence of audience impact and the variety of ways that evidence was captured.
Key Learning Points:
Participants will learn a variety of traditional and innovative ways to capture evidence of the reach and significance of the impact of art research
