Research, evaluation and project development in the arts, cultural and third sectors
Armstrong Cameron is a partnership between Derrick Armstrong and Dawn Cameron. Armstrong Cameron is a member of the UK Evaluation Society.
We have worked together on a range of projects in the arts, cultural and third sectors over many years and formed the partnership as a vehicle through which we can bring together our complementary areas of expertise in order to develop our own projects and to respond to exciting opportunities which chime with our joint areas of interest.
We have a particular interest in working on projects which focus on socially engaged practice, issues of equality and social justice. When we carry out research projects, consultations and evaluations we work to find out what works, for whom, how and why. To do this, we place a lot of emphasis on listening to the stories people tell about the projects they’re involved with; those stories can come from participants, project deliverers, funders, commissioners and communities of interest.
Our work is delivered in line with a set of ethics and values.
We aim to develop collaborative and supportive methods of working with clients, their stakeholders and with participants who have given their time to programmes of work;
We work with clients to agree clear reporting mechanisms and regular communication on progress;
We actively promote working methods which themselves exemplify our commitment to equality, fairness and social justice;
We are open to and welcoming of constructive feedback on our professional practice.
