Speakers: Diana Hor, Mijail Raigorodsky, Jean-Marie Chapeau, Myriam Bérubé
Shifting away from mechanical accountability to community learning, Québec’s community sector has been reframing evaluation for many years. The intention is to be more participatory and collaborative, leading to higher levels of learning, strengthened community relations and greater transparency.
Indeed, who said Festival and Evaluation do not go together? Join us to learn more about how the Centre-South neighbourhood in Montréal has experimented with new and exciting data collection methods and creative ways of sharing analysis and narratives like the “Fest’ Eval”. The community has been successful in engaging participation, diversity and contributions from people coming from all walks of life to take ownership of the evaluation processes and outcomes in their community.
Capacity-building, empowerment and community ownership are instrumental in place-based participatory evaluation. Over the last decade, Dynamo, a Québec-based capacity-building organization, has been pioneering this field of practice, working alongside communities to explore new ways of measuring change that can keep up with the fast-moving pace of community initiatives and focusing on strategic learning to constantly improve the course of action.
Join Myriam Bérubé as she invites Diana Hor (Community leader, Center-South neighbourhood), Mijail Raigorodsky (Strategic advisor- evaluation, Dynamo) and Jean-Marie Chapeau (Evaluating impact Director, Tamarack Institute) to share highlights and lessons learned from Québec in the practice of participatory evaluation and how it can lead to new thinking, better strategies and deeper impact.
