Inside Out Cymru Evaluation

April 2020 – April 2022

Inside Out Cymru (IOC) offers a range of participatory arts classes and workshops across the South Wales region, supporting people to engage in the arts who may otherwise not have the opportunity to do so. IOC aims to:

  • Provide¬†creative arts workshops¬†in a safe, friendly environment, facilitated by professional artists.
  • Break down barriers to opportunities and to encourage access to the arts and creative expression to promote mental health and well-being.
  • Co-produce specialised arts projects focusing on the identified needs of target groups and individuals.

Over the last two years, we have been providing evaluation support to IOC, to help them develop an evaluation methodology that is achievable and meaningful. This has included consultation with participants, staff and artists, and the development of new systems and data collection approaches.
