Project Planning

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail’’
(Benjamin Franklin)

Whole project planning is usually done by the community musician working in partnership with a commissioner or a team of other musicians/artists/community activists.

For a project plan you will need to include the following:

  • Aim of the project: What do you want to achieve by doing the project?
  • Intended outcomes: What changes do you want to achieve through the activities in the project
  • Outputs: How many sessions: workshops/events/new works do you expect to deliver as part of the project?
  • Who will be involved with you?
  • Timeline: What happens when
  • Project management:
    • Book venues: Where will thing take place?
    • Budget: How much money is there for the project?
    • Contracts for all artists exchanged?
    • Partnership agreements in place?
  • Marketing: How will people know how to join in with your project?
  • Evaluation: How will you know if you have achieved all you set out to achieve? Think about how you will monitor numbers and collect feedback from participants and their significant others e.g. carers and family
  • Final Report: Who will write it and disseminate it?
