‘Monitoring and evaluation are a vital part for Creative Black Country, it’s a complex programme with activities on different scales and levels. Since May 2016 Earthen Lamp took what we had and overhauled it all, thus making what we do simpler and efficient. When on site at an event the team are extremely professional and people are really happy to share their feedback. Always available to help, go above & beyond.’

Sajida Carr, Programme Director, Creative Black Country.
