Measurable outcomes of cultural engagement in the governance domain

This page offers a schema of measurable outcomes of cultural engagement in the governance (or civic) domain. It should be read in conjunction with the pages on measurable outcomes in the cultural, social, economic and environmental domains.

These outcomes are currently in draft form and are being refined as we examine more theory and research and consult governance policy experts. In the meantime, we recommend that those seeking to evaluate the governance outcomes of their cultural activities use measures from their own organisation’s strategic documents or requirements of funding agencies.

These outcomes are:

1. Sense of civic pride enhanced
2. Useful connections between groups in the community increased
3. Sense of a positive future for community inspired
4. Active citizenship stimulated
