Quality of cultural interventions is connected to the people, including both the actors who are affected by the intervention and the stakeholders engaged in the assessment process. Frequently, they have different needs.
It is important to identify this network of stakeholders as well as distinguish their role and position in both the intervention and assessment. This also refers to mediation and mitigation effects that may overcome potential conflicts of interests between different stakeholders of the intervention and thereby also increase local ownership.
Stakeholders may include funders, managers, beneficiaries, artists, business and creative firms, educators, visitors/beneficiaries of the intervention, inhabitants, NGOs, and institutions as well as the broader public.
