Inspiring, Engaging and Challenging

Participatory arts practice should inspire and engage participants, but it will also be challenging. Generally artists will be working with participants to develop new skills and do something they haven’t experienced before. Quality practice will balance fun with challenge, and artists will seek to inspire participants to move outside of their comfort zone.

Key Indicators include:

  • The arc of the project / programme has been mapped out and the approach to key challenging moments has been discussed
  • The key objectives of the work are communicated and understood by all partners and artists involved
  • Artists bring their own practice into the room as inspiration
  • Support is in place for artists and participants to make the journey of the project / programme
