April 2015: Young People as Co-Producers

An evaluation of The Mighty Creatives' Locally Based Partner (LBP) programme. The central aims for the LBP programme, which began in 2013 and concludes in 2015, are to work with young people as co-producers of arts and cultural activity and to create stronger networks between local arts organisations in a number of priority places.

Shared Intelligence (Si) was commissioned in June 2014 to evaluate The Mighty Creatives (TMC) Locally Based Partner (LBP) programme. The central aims for the LBP programme, which began in 2013 and concludes in 2015, are to work with young people as co-producers of arts and cultural activity and to create stronger networks between local arts organisations in a number of priority places.

TMC have also invested in networking support which they have encouraged all LBP project leads to take part in. These have consisted of regular workshops and networking meetings at which LBP project staff and the team at TMC have been able to share their experiences and learning to date. Bringing LBP projects together in this way has been an important part of moving away from a series of bilateral funder>project relationships, to a more networked set of relationships between TMC as the Bridge Organisation and the sector partners it supports.

This evaluation will explore what impact the LBP programme has had on working with young people as co-producers of arts and cultural activity, and in terms of creating organisational network effects. It will focus on the first round of 15 ‘priority places’ partnerships that were announced by TMC in early 2013.
