Welcome to the Arts, Culture, and Museums
Topical Interest Group!
The primary goal of the TIG is to support and strengthen the evaluation of arts, humanities, and science programs, practices, and visitor participation. The programs that we evaluate occur across a wide variety of contexts including schools, universities, cultural organizations, museums, libraries, zoos, aquariums, community centers, and parks.
This TIG responds to the needs of evaluators by providing opportunities for discussing innovative practices, developing evaluation tools and approaches, and sharing current evaluation findings specific to arts and museum education, arts participation, and visitor studies. TIG activities are meant to foster the arts, culture, and visitor studies evaluation communities and connect it to the larger evaluation field.
EVAL22: (re)Shaping Evaluation Together
This year’s AEA conference will be in-person in New Orleans, LA, November 7-12. The theme – (re)Shaping Evaluation Together – has lots of potential for evaluators in our field! We're beginning to review proposals soon. Visit the conference page here for more details, and feel free to reach out to the TIG’s Program Chair, Marcel, with questions.
We've sent all the information to the AEA Conference Team, and we're waiting on next steps. Thank you to all the reviewers and for all the proposals!
