AA2A Artists Evaluation 2018-19 Part 2
If you find this form difficult because of a disability, please phone 0114 296 0688 or email aa2aproject@icloud.com We can provide the form in other formats or arrange to do it over the phone.

The evaluation is compulsory as we use it to improve our schemes for next year's artists and because of this, we will chase you mercilessly for responses! Please send it back by Friday 14th June 2019. It takes at least 5 minutes to complete.

Your responses allow us to evaluate AA2A nationally as well as your ‘host’ institution (they will not see your responses but will be given feedback and advice based on their artists' collective feedback). There is space to suggest improvements or give positive feedback at the end of the form. We always pass on specific thanks where appropriate.

We look forward to receiving your responses. Thank you for your time and commitment filling this in. It really is appreciated and we read every one!
