Monitoring and Evaluation can be important tools for both funders and arts practitioners in terms of demonstrating the value of the arts to communities and funders, accounting for the use of public funds, and designing policy interventions. The arts (broadly defined) result in three types of value: Economic (economic growth, employment, trade), Social (community development, social cohesion, inclusiveness) and Intrinsic (artistic quality, personal enlightenment, spiritual values). This proposed M&E Framework identifies five cultural value themes and links them to indicators that could be used by arts organisations to demonstrate these kinds of value. For a full discussion of the development of the Framework, please see A Framework for the Monitoring and Evaluation of Publically Funded Arts, Culture and Heritage (South African Cultural Observatory, 2016). This report demonstrates how the Framework could be applied to a sample of projects funded under the Mzansi’s Golden Economy (MGE)
