A small, informal meeting was organized in Utrecht, the Netherlands on December 15th 2022 with a focused group of 7 funders and policy makers in the Netherlands who had been involved in the development of CreaTures evaluation and impact methods. In the atmospheric environment of local Utrecht print collective KAPITAAL, the group discussed and reviewed the CreaTures 9 Dimensions evaluation tool in depth. 🫱‍🫲

Participants praised the simplicity and accessibility of the tool when many other academic tools are much too complicated to be used in practice – while also seeing how it can capture the richness of creative practice. The 9 Dimensions tool will be integrated into a prominent impact toolkit for creative practitioners, often used by funders to support creatives and which is currently being revised.✨
