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 audience participation. The programs that we evaluate occur across a wide variety of contexts like schools, theaters, museums, community centers, parks, libraries, and zoos.

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.
