To enable any individual or community to move from exclusion to participation.
Open Cinema has developed its theory of change in the light of discoveries from our national pilot evaluation (2009-10), including through a two-day workshop facilitated in 2016 by The Social Innovation Partnership. This has continued to evolve (see slide), but remains based on a four-step process, by which we achieve our mission:
Engagement: motivating excluded people to take part in community activities
Inspiration: sparking new or renewed interests or aspirations
Development: converting interests into life or media skills through OC activities
Progression: enabling onward pathways into education, employment, and improved life circumstances.
