Week 40: Visionary Evaluation AEA 2014 song

Patricia Rogers's picture 15th October 2014 by Patricia Rogers

To celebrate the start of the 2014 conference of the American Evaluation Association, we're delighted to be able to share the lyrics and music of the Visionary Evaluation AEA 2014 song to make it easier to sing along during and after the conference.

The song will be performed at the first plenary [session corrected] of the 2014 American Evaluation Association which begins 9.45am Thursday 16 October. The song draws on material from the AEA 6 word story initiative and the theme of this year's conference - 'visionary evaluation for a sustainable, equitable future'.

Lyrics: AEA 6 word story contributors and Kataraina Pipi

Music: Kataraina Pipi, Maraea Pipi-Takoko, Mere Arihi Pipi-Takoko and Mike McCarthy (Engineer/Musician)

Here we are in Denver
Another year has gone by
We come together to learn and share
Our thinking and know how
A myriad of Evaluators
AEA Twenty-Fourteen (2014)
Rocky Mountain High, Colorado
Rocky Mountain High, Colorado

We're all in this together
Recount how we share our world
Don't be afraid to ask questions
Find the patterns and the views
Boundaries and relationships
For an aspirational world

Visionary Evaluation
a Sustainable, Equitable Future

Reflection and inquiry
Appreciating all voices
Highlights merit, worth and significance

We have Real and Genuine
Empowerment and Systems
Culturally Responsive and
Participatory
Let it be Developmental, Transformative

Visionary Evaluation
a Sustainable, Equitable Future

Visionary Evaluation
a Sustainable, Equitable Future

For a hundred years or more
For a hundred years or more
For a hundred years or more
