The evaluation of the processes and activities carried out within the framework of the Capital of Culture year was, from the start, one of the basic tasks of San Sebastian 2016. Going beyond the traditional models for measuring economic, media or image impacts, a comprehensive evaluation system was proposed that would also cover more intangible aspects, reflected in values or sentiment, among others. The design of this evaluation system responded to the Capital of Culture project's philosophy itself, which focused on topics related to the social and human impacts of cultural activity.
The evaluation model of DSS2016EU proposed a participative, innovative framework linked to the local and international community, by means of methodologies that encouraged active participation, dialogue, constructive criticism, the systematic accumulation of experiences and critical thought in both external assessments and in internal monitoring.
The evaluation reports of the projects will be available in this section, once they have been presented in the diffusion conference that is scheduled to take place during the 18th and 19th of May 2017 in the Centre Carlos Santamaria of the UPV/EHU – University of the Basque Country in Donostia-San Sebastian.
