Measuring the unmeasurable? Data collection, analysis and evaluation in culture

Online and in Košice, Slovakia

In the framework of the ENCATC Evaluation Working Sessions, this seminar "Measuring the unmeasurable?  Data collection, analysis and evaluation in culture" will be held on 25 November 2020 from 9:30-17:30 (CET) in a hybrid format both online and in person.


As the contemporary scientific discussion on the evaluation of cultural projects evolves with regards to methods and theory, we aim to introduce an interdisciplinary perspective to fill the gaps regarding research and practice.

The seminar plans to support the network of different stakeholders in the cultural sector and encourage a debate between academia and practisioners focused on measurement and evaluation in culture.
