EXAMPLE TWO – LOOKING YONDER: LONGITUDINAL RESEARCH AND EVALUATION OF THE YONDER PARTICIPATIVE ARTS-BASED LEARNING MODEL 2010–2012 In the evaluation of Creating Queensland, the researchers took on the external and distanced approach that, according to theories about research methods, allows for objectivity in data collection and reporting. However, throughout the Creating Queensland evaluation, there was some unease from both my research collaborator and myself about the nature of learning, or indeed if any learning was taking place within the Brisbane Festival as a result of the evaluation and report.

The project began in earnest in early 2010 and was framed through three research questions mutually devised by the QPAC manager of KITE, the Yonder project, and myself as the lead researcher. The research frame of the project was articulated through three questions: (1) What is the Yonder model? (2) How does Yonder evolve and improve in-action and insite? (3) Is Yonder an effective model of CCD in schools and communities as demonstrated by (a) high-quality student experiences through arts-rich activities and (b) systemic plasticity and adroitness?

This is not to say that no evaluation had taken place to enact a continuous cycle of renewal within the project; an evaluation prior to 2009 was undertaken ‘in-house’ by the teacher artists1 in the project as a part of their creative practice cycle. Yonder was KITE’s three-year arts-based learning project and was designed to operate within those communities with least access to the arts. The project sought to engage communities in deep, rich, and meaningful arts participation through consultation, residencies, ideas generation, and workshops with professional creative artists, culminating in a student performance at a significant cultural institution.
