Description

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.

14 November 2018-Birmingham Dance Network (Birmingham,UK)

Birmingham Dance Network(BDN)creates opportunities for artists to easily connect, network and discover other artists, choreographers and teachers. They hold monthly social events and we were able to organise an evaluation session, attached to the social, with artists attending. 16 artists attended the social and 14 agreed to take part in the evaluation. The participants were told that they would be evaluating digital proof-of-concept tools developed by the WhoLoDancE project. They bought their own laptops and given access to the Reserved Area of the website to evaluate the tools.
