“As an external evaluator of this project I have been observing the project since August 2012 and have been able to gain some understanding of its objectives and its progress, through attending meetings and events, reading and viewing documents and conversing with participants. I have attended some of the group meetings with university and museum staff, with the reference group and with the project management team. I have also been able to attend the opening events for two of the projects and view three of the exhibitions. I have spoken with some of the teaching staff over the phone and have conversed with the students who have studied the Learning and Teaching in Public Spaces (LTPS) unit. I have brought to this evaluation process my 20 years of experience as a teacher of humanities and visual arts and my practice as an artist who works with communities to produce art projects which are displayed or installed in public spaces. It is important to acknowledge that I have had a limited involvement with this project in comparison with the teachers, students and project team. The following are my observations of and about the project from one external observer’s point of view”
