Imogen Slater has extensive evaluation and research experience relating to: community, arts, creative sector, youth & CJS, health & well being, training, professional development, and informal learning. Imogen has worked with CUCR since 2000 on numerous research and evaluation projects. Currently these include; Creative Families with the South London Gallery, Future Stages with Oval House, Silver Stories an EU Leonardo funded project and the Capital People Programme with the London Leading for Health Partnership (NHS).
Much of Imogen’s work is outward facing. It seeks to make well-researched connections between grass roots practice, and policy or funding strategies. Imogen’s preferred approach is one where research and evaluation is an active and dynamic resource that is embedded into projects and encourages stakeholder participation. With CUCR colleagues, she has developed methods and tools that facilitate this which can be tailored to meet individual client requirements.
Project management and community development skills enhance Imogen’s ability to work with diverse people and to varied project briefs at local, regional, national and European levels. Imogen’s USP is apparently, ‘approachability’.
Examples of research and evaluation reports include:
