EVALUATOR, CREATIVE CARE, FULLSCOPE CONSORTIUM
In 2020, I evaluated a Covid-19 responsive project which directly reached nearly 400 children and young people through high-quality resources. Entitled Creative Care, the resources invited participants to create work and ideas, using their immediate environment and in many cases, art materials delivered to their door, with the aim was to improve their mental health. My role was to evaluate the effectiveness of the newly-formed consortium Fullscope, the impact of the resources – the ‘invitations to create’ – and the responses from a proportion of the participants. The ensuing report included the findings and recommendations to inform future arts and health projects for children and young people.
