Many of the skills required for evaluation I also use in other consultation, research and writing projects such as consultation with children and young people, stakeholder consultation, scoping or mapping reports, and researching and writing case studies (either as part of an evaluation or for advocacy purposes). Examples of this work includes:
- Drake Music – Absorbed by Sound Case Studies
- Wiltshire Music Connect Music Education Hub – Take Note Youth Voice consultation
- Wiltshire Music Connect Music Education Hub – Early Years Music Mapping and Consultation
- Bristol Plays Music – Sound Splash Case Studies
My writing work also includes website and newsletter copy, information leaflets, funding applications, updating safeguarding policies – anything really where organisations need additional capacity or a fresh eye. This work draws on almost 20 years of experience working in arts management – largely developing, managing and fundraising for arts activities for children and young people.
