Abstract

Executive Summary
This document reports on the evaluation work completed by the University of Lincoln with Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV) on the Lincolnshire-based Young Peoples’ Programme (YPP). LOV is a network of ten visual and performing arts centres in Lincolnshire. The YPP attempted to engage and support local young people in creating and commissioning new artistic work within the multi-site network from 2012 to 2015. This report explores and examines the programme and outlines the contribution to young people in Lincolnshire. The YPP (including the evaluation element) was funded by The Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

The material contained in this report comprises a qualitative research element which investigates the experiences and perspectives of those directly involved with the YPP; young people aged between 12-25 years. Questionnaire, survey methods along with a secondary analysis on the recruitment and participation information formed the quantitative aspects.

Headline findings from the evidence collected by the evaluative research were:
• The YPP surpassed set targets with the engagement of over 4,000 young people visiting and participating in LOV-inspired events and projects in the network of venues over three years.
• The YPP empowered and involved over 150 young people as active ‘decision-makers’ in newly formed youth groups which designed and created novel and innovative projects for venues.
• The YPP recruited 336 young people in specific commissioning activity, for new project and event development in venues over three years.

The evaluation identified current successful elements; however it is recommended that current provision of the YPP should: a) improve the capacity and quality of the evaluation work, b) sustain young people at ‘the heart’ of the programme and c) investigate the venue influence on YPP activity.
