This little book is for organisations, teams and individuals who wish to learn more about how Creative Evaluation can support their evaluation needs and goals. Creative Evaluation is not one clear pathway to evaluating. It is instead a constellation of approaches that employ creative methods, tools and thinking aimed at producing evaluations that foster collaboration, mutual learning, inclusivity and engagement. Learning from and responding to the specific context within which an evaluation is situated, along with being open and flexible in how participants can contribute to the evaluation design and practice, are key elements of Creative Evaluation. ​​​​​​​​​​​
