Welcome to the Arts, Culture, and Audiences
Topical Interest Group!
The primary goal of the TIG is to support and strengthen the evaluation of arts and
culture 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 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.
