Theatre arts in UK City of Culture evaluations: the case for headphone verbatim

    Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


    This presentation will examine the case for the use of theatre arts, specifically verbatim theatre practice, in the process of designing, conducting, analysing, and disseminating evaluation projects with respect to UK City of Culture (UKCC) programmes. I will propose that using theatre arts as the method of evaluation evokes different ways of knowing and understanding the values of the UKCC programme and its impacts on a host city. Specifically, that headphone verbatim as method can capture narrative perspectives that do not appear to be captured by existing UKCC evaluation methods.
