Wholodance Artist and researcher evaluation events
An important component of the Wholodance evaluation was to ensure that we had artists and researchers use the tools and give feedback. Two events were planned which we promoted as ‘labs’ and organised as two or three hours long to enable the participants to have a substantial amount of time with the web-based platform and tools and the opportunity to continue to have access post-event for a limited time. This was important because having more time with the tools may create a deeper engagement and offer an opportunity for them to use in their work.The evaluation events catered to different artists from several backgrounds with varying degrees of experience.
3 October2018-Coventry University (Coventry,UK) This evaluation lab was held in the Performance Studio at Coventry University for three hours and primarily for staff and students to use the web-based prototype tools that have been developed in the project. The tools were available online (for a limited period) and people bought their own laptops and given passwords to enable them to access the Reserved Area on the website and thus the tools.
