About the Webinar

Achieving and evidencing impact boosts the status of art research, and hence access to funding for research projects and research institutions. Lesley Brook will present her research evaluating the emotional impacts of an exhibition of contemporary art, explaining how the curator’s goals informed her decision to use Q methodology and semi-structured interviews. Lesley will discuss how we might develop strategies for evaluating the impact of art research, and of other research that might be expected to have similar social impacts.
