Seminar overview

Dr Jess Dart, fellow of the AES, and founder of Clear Horizon Consulting, will host a conversation about some of the ways evaluators are being invited into the early stages of social innovation. In particular, Jess will draw on a case study of a 10 year community-led, place-based initiative named “Our Town” in South Australia. The evaluation team have partnered with six regional towns, a social innovation organisation named TACSI (The Australian Centre for Social Innovation), and the Fay Fuller Foundation. What is interesting about this case is that evaluative thinking was used from the very start. After presenting the case study, Jess will open the floor for questions and conversations about how evaluation can help support social innovation to create positive impact for people, place and planet.
