Here&Now13: Mapping process, measuring impacts. An evaluation of a year long mentoring program for artists with disability in WA

DADAA Inc.,

2014

The key aim of this evaluation was to investigate the processes and impacts of HERE&NOW13, and to generate a model that explains how the participants (including curators, mentees, mentors and partner organisations) experienced the program.

Key findings revealed particularly beneficial characteristics of project design such as using an organisational–individual mentoring model; showcasing works at a high-profile contemporary gallery; and using a robust partnership model that opened up networks to artists and their mentors.

The most noted benefits for the mentees were: enjoyment, working with new and high-quality materials, pride, increased motivation and inspiration, increased confidence and sense of purpose, working more independently, becoming more aware of their potential as professional artists, accessing new networks and relationships, and having a higher profile as artists.
