Quality Assurance – you get what we promise: Any
project
Frilly
undertakes
will
have
an
evaluation
and
monitoring
process
established
during
 the
planning
stages.
By
mapping
our
approach
against
agreed
aims
and
outcomes
from
project
 partners
and
commissioners
we
ensure
that
the
work
we
develop
is
fit
for
purpose,
will
achieve
its
 planned
outcomes
and
hopefully
much
more.
As
part
of
this
outcomes
planning
process
we
 establish
the
key
milestones
for
monitoring
and
evaluation
to
take
place
as
well
as
the
most
 appropriate
methods
for
capturing
and
evidencing
the
outcomes
that
have
been
achieved.

 Monitoring
and
evaluation
methods
often
include
standardised
forms
pre
and
post
events
and
 workshops;
body
mapping;
photography;
film;
audio
recording;
comment
walls;
and
other
 participatory
tools
and
techniques.

With
14
years
arts
delivery
and
management
between
us
we
 can
guarantee
artistic
quality
that
will
meet
your
needs.
 
 The team: Kirsty
Hillyer:
 I
want
to
see
arts
and
creativity
embedded
into
how
we
live
and
work
as
a
nation
in
order
to
see
 positive,
 social
 change
 and
 enabling
 communities
 and
 professionals
 to
 realise
 their
 creative
 potential.

 
 I
 have
 strong
 management
 skills
 both
 in
 terms
 of
 people
 and
 projects
 as
 well
 as
 the
 ability
 to
 deliver
high
quality,
big
budget,
flexible
programmes
of
work
that
can
demonstrate
their
impact.
 As
part
of
my
practice
as
both
an
artist
and
manager
I
believe
the
process
of
engagement
is
the
 product
and
the
art,
as
much
as
the
final
outputs.
This
belief
has
enabled
me
to
bring
alternate
 perspective
in
developing
strategies,
frameworks
and
position
papers
for
Multistory
and
Sandwell
 Local
Authority
(SMBC)
as
well
as
develop
professional
training
offers
and
resource
guides.
 
 Adrienne
Frances:
 I
persistently
pursue
one
belief:
art
and
creativity
can
change
people.

 
 It
inspires,
motivates,
and
offers
fresh
perspectives.
It
is
a
powerful
tool
that
can
provide
 unexpected
and
exciting
outcomes.
It
can
genuinely
engage
the
hardest
to
reach
people
on
their
 terms.
It’s
fun.

 
 I
have
spent
the
past
7
years
developing
ways
of
demonstrating
these
values
to
diverse
audiences
 through
hands‐on
delivery
complimented
by
project
management
expertise.
I
am
an
advocate
of
 these
tools,
and
am
now
focusing
on
developing
rigorous
and
meaningful
evaluation
 methodologies
that
concisely
demonstrate
their
value,
alongside
communication
channels
to
 further
promote
them.

Statement I want to see arts and creativity embedded into how we live and work as a nation in order to see positive, social change and enabling communities and professionals to realise their creative potential. I have strong management skills both in terms of people and projects as well as the ability to deliver high quality, big budget, flexible programmes of work that can demonstrate their impact. As part of my practice as both an artist and manager I believe the process of engagement is the product and the art, as much as the final outputs. This belief has enabled me to bring alternate perspective in developing strategies, frameworks and position papers for Multistory and Sandwell Local Authority (SMBC) as well as develop professional training offers and resource guides.
