Learning across initiatives - Workshop for funders of culture and civil society

30/03/2021 31/03/2021

About this Event

The world is at a crossroads of Health, Democracy, Climate & Technology. It is a time when culture and civil society actors must affect greater change with fewer resources. To endure, we need improved systems for monitoring & evaluation, knowledge management and learning. In this time of heightened needs and diminished budgets, how can we leverage knowledge to deliver improved impact across supported initiatives?

As a manager of resources that support civil society and culture, we invite you to take part in a problem-solving workshop. Global Grand Central non-profit will host the session in collaboration with the C-Ship Program of ICHEC Brussels Management School, aimed at helping cultural actors to be more resilient during this transition period.

Expert facilitator Philippe Drouillon/Metamorphosis will lead the session.



- Monitoring, evaluation and learning officers (or similar) at institutions that fund civil society.

Goals of the session

- Explore & share challenges & possibilities of learning across initiatives in your organizations and contexts especially relating approaches to M&E and open knowledge management.

- Start mapping potential common solutions as foundation for future sessions and work.
