Unlimited International case studies

March 12, 2018

(Part 7 of 10 in a series of blog posts evaluating the Unlimited International programme)

How do the stakeholders feel about the Unlimited International case studies?

Unlimited International has prepared a number of case studies about their work, as part of the programme.

Overall, 59% of the stakeholders agreed that the Unlimited International case studies were useful for them, and 59% agreed that the Unlimited International Easy Read case studies were useful for them.

Several of the stakeholders commented that although they found case studies useful, they had not previously seen these ones.

“Case studies are invaluable but I have not seen the ones referred to.” (Brazil)

“I was not given case studies to read or directed towards reading them.” (China)

“I didn’t have the chance to see them.” (Palestine)

“Sorry – haven’t read them. Maybe in itself that’s feedback.” (Uganda)

That said, there was certainly a feeling that case studies would be useful if provided in an interesting and accessible format.

“Less written case studies and more videos with subtitles.” (Uganda)

“More video content, more visuals. Found the case studies a tad too wordy sometimes.” (Singapore)

“Transcripts of the video text would also be useful.” (Australia)

The stakeholders were keen to use any opportunity possible to share learning from the Unlimited International programme.

“More information that can be shared with all!” (Uganda)

“Share the value of disability arts more wider in international network.” (Cambodia)

“It’s very useful to share the work in Singapore since it demonstrates what could be possible.” (Singapore)

Some specific ideas for future content included:

“Invite more people from specific art form disciplines/venues to sharing.” (Japan)

“Artists should provide us with more info such as where the work could be shown in a UK and overseas context, any notes about translation in different contexts, problems encountered and how they were resolved (useful to know for the future)” (Japan)

“It could be good to interview key partners/funders of the program to hear what’s in it for them.  It could also be good to interview producer placement holders several years in, to see what’s changed for them since Unlimited (to track progress through longitudinal study)” (Australia)

What can Unlimited International learn from this?

It appears that (in theory at least) there is a demand for case study information, particularly if it is presented in a variety of accessible formats.

That said, despite being keen to exchange knowledge the stakeholders have not sought this information out.  It may be that the case studies would be better utilised if marketed more overtly by Unlimited International, including clear calls to action relating to accessing and sharing the materials.
