Sharing arts and health resources with practitioners, policy makers, academics and the community.
Disseminate is an action-based evaluation, research and publishing project focused on arts and health. The project is a dynamic partnership between DADAA, the Rio Tinto WA Future Fund, Healthway, The University of Western Australia and Australia Council for the Arts. Disseminate also offers consultancy services to the arts and health sector.
As part of Disseminate's annual activities, practical evaluations of specific projects are undertaken. This work provides evidence for the effectiveness of arts an dhealth program and forms the basis of advocacy work. Evaluation activities also support the long-term research goal of developing an evaluation framework that accounts for the complexities of arts and health interventions.
The Disseminate digital platform is a major national and international resources hub, publishing information on evaluation approaches and case studies. The platform also has a toolkit of evaluation resources for practitioners. Disseminate has completed evaluations of many of DADAA's programs.
