“What does evaluation offer and what does evaluation need in times of great uncertainty and injustice?” Nora Murphy Johnson and A. Rafael Johnson from Inspire to Change and Chris Corrigan from Harvest Moon Consulting talk about certainty and uncertainty, arts-based evaluation, transformation, and grant cycles.
A. Rafael Johnson talks about arts-based evaluation and bringing creativity into our evaluation practice. We learn about how Andy has brought poetry, theatre, kinetic sculpture and more into his evaluation methodology, how being a novelist helps him and his clients understand and work in complexity.
Nora talks about evaluation for healing and change, evaluation as sacred work and a noble calling, and the original Creative Evaluation Cohort. This episode includes a discussion centered around the death of a young child, as well as the effects of systematic racism.
