Artistic and Professional

Participatory arts practice has the art at its heart, and this principle makes a commitment to this. It also outlines that artists are professionals in the same way social workers, counsellors or medical professionals are. They should have relevant knowledge, skills and experience, as well as a profile in their field.

Key Indicators include:

  • Artists are members of an appropriate membership organisation e.g. People Dancing, Sound Sense, National Association of Writers in Education
  • Artists have a thriving arts practice in their own right
  • Artists undertake ongoing professional development and training
  • Projects in particular contexts involve training to support artists in delivery
