Coronavirus Participatory Arts Meetings

May - July 2020

Following a vital conversation on social media led by Guy O’Donnell, Learning and Participation Producer, National Dance Company Wales which opened a discussion on how the sector could deliver participatory arts effectively, a range of partners collaborated to lead Zoom discussions for the sector exploring the impact of the lockdown on our work and working creatively together to think beyond the lockdown.

You can find the notes from each meeting below.

Capturing the Learning

These Zoom meetings explored how we capture the learning from organisations and artists who are currently delivering projects. We explored what methods were working well, what we learnt through this experience, and how we adapted our working practices.
