REGISTER HERE

Includes a Presentation by Voices UP!

Come see evaluation findings like you’ve never seen them before as we use theatre to present a day in the life of the Learning Lab, a program at the UBC Learning Exchange. The Learning Lab offers diverse educational opportunities tailored to community members' interests and passions in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Collectively written and performed by UBC Learning Exchange staff, students, and patrons as part of an evaluation of the Learning Lab program, Voices UP! takes program evaluation off the page and on to the stage. As an innovative research-based theatre project, Voices UP! exemplifies a personal, narrative approach to engaging in evaluation and presenting findings to community groups and funding bodies. Developed over 18 months of rehearsals and performances, the creation process has encouraged continual reflection and evaluation of how well our programing works for our participants. This will be our fourth staged-reading, and the performance will be followed by a facilitated discussion with the Voices UP! creators. Come enjoy a show, and be introduced to a collaborative, engaging means of arts-based evaluation
