There is growing recognition that existing monitoring and evaluation models do not fully capture the complexity of work in international development. Such models can be especially limiting when it comes to evaluating arts-based methods and programmes. The Evaluating the Arts Workshop was co-hosted by the British Council and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through its PRAXIS project. It brought together researchers from across the AHRC project portfolio, as well as representatives from the AHRC, the British Council, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and UNESCO. The outputs from these discussions have formed the basis of this paper.
