Is this a Better Place? The Art & Science of Place-Based Evaluation

October 5, 2015 - 9:00 am to October 6, 2015 - 12:30 pm
Event Host(s): Aspen Forum for Community Solutions, Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, and Neighborhood Funders Group

When it comes to improving the wellbeing of people and communities, place matters.  That is why foundations, nonprofits, and their public and private partners have worked together on hundreds place-based initiatives across the country in recent years.

This work has had successes and challenges, and it is highly dynamic. Many partners involved in these efforts are increasingly asking: How we can advance our work on this front—and how can we use tools of evaluation and learning to improve place-based initiatives?

The Art and Science of Place-Based Evaluation will take a deep dive into these questions. Unlike conventional conferences, which often keep attendees watching from a distance, this two-day event will invite everyone to contribute their knowledge and ask questions about evaluating place-based community change efforts.
