Part 2 of a 3 part Social Circus Series
Zoe Brookes, Charlotte Byram and Jen Agans have curated a series of workshops on starting social circuses and demonstrating their impact to funders, focused on those areas that many working in the field find most challenging. Each part of the series builds on the next, so come to them all, or jump in at the part that reflects the challenges you’re working on now.
This session:
Does the very word "evaluation" make you quiver with fear? No need for that! Evaluation is a hot topic in the arts world today (especially with funders), and getting started is easier than you might think. 

How do I show funders and supporters the real impact my program is creating through circus? What’s a logic model or a theory of change? Is there a difference between an output and an outcome? And why does any of this matter? If you’re looking to take the next step into social circus, join us for this hands-on workshop and learn to use models to demonstrate your program’s impact. Models, such as logic models and theories of change, are powerful tools to unify your leadership team, clarify your program’s purpose, prioritize, identify program gaps, and lay out your evaluation plan. Sometimes required by grants, and essential to not wasting your time in collecting the wrong data, models will make your life better. In this collaborative talk, we will work together as a group on an example, answer questions, and get you on the joyful path of clear program planning.

Intended for program managers and coordinators, grant writers, those curious about evaluation, and those just starting their program or just starting to realize they should collect data on an existing program. Unless you have already designed and thoroughly understand your social circus program’s logic model, this workshop is for you.

Charlotte Byram MPH is a social circus researcher and the current Development Manager & Evaluation Specialist at Circus Harmony in St. Louis.
