In 2016, we carried out an economic, social and cultural evaluation of Liverpool Biennial, the UK’s largest and most internationally acclaimed festival of visual art.
This included developing a robust evaluation framework, working with a range of partner institutions and conducting a large-scale audience survey. It included as a survey with participating artists to explore impact on cultural infrastructure and the work of the artists. The evaluation was deliberately holistic, in that it aimed to assess social, economic, and cultural impact and the relationship the Biennial has with Liverpool as a cultural city.
