Ideas Test learns new things from every project and event we do. To share that learning with other organsations and our community we write Case Studies about them.
Below you can find some of our past case studies, most of which are in PDF format.
What do our Case Studies include?
Our Case Studies usually cover;
- What the project/event was about and who it was for
- What we wanted the project/event to do
- Who we worked with – partners and community members and organisations
- The way we worked – the methods and the ideas behind them
- Evaluation – the things we learned by doing the project/event.
