Evidence to Prove the Practice

Session Synopsis

How can artists and teaching artists better represent the impact they have in the communities they serve?

In May of 2019, Brad Haseman provided a brief overview of his work in Papua New Guinea (PNG) with Life Drama. Since 2007, a group of researchers and teaching artists from Australia have been collaborating with PNG colleagues to set up a sustainable infrastructure for designing, implementing, and evaluating a teaching artist program addressing sexual health issues, particularly safe sexual behaviors, for young people in PNG.

While explaining his work, Brad questions the value of traditional impact analysis and explains why quantitative and qualitative data do not really serve the work of artists and teaching artists. Instead, he posits that performative data must be folded into the mix to better interact with funders.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
