Impact &
Insight Toolkit

A new resource to help Arts Council England’s funded organisations to evaluate the impact of their work on the people who experience it 

 

What is the
Impact & Insight Toolkit?

The Impact & Insight Toolkit provides arts and cultural organisations with a shared approach to evaluating their work. The Toolkit uses sets of metrics to explore what audiences, participants and peers think about a performance, exhibition or project. The resulting insights can be used to inform future practice, whilst helping to build a greater understanding of the cultural sector as a whole.

Guidance and
Support

The Impact & Insight Toolkit comes with a full suite of support and best practice documents, training sessions and webinars. If you ever get stuck and can’t find the answer, our helpful team is on hand to offer assistance.

"For me the primary aim of the data and of this programme in general is not to benefit the Arts Council internally, it is very much about being developed for the benefit of the organisations involved and helping them to inform their creative process"

– Darren Henley, CEO, Arts Council England.
