Focus On Participant Progression

Participatory arts projects enable participants to build skills and experience. Each process undertaken is focused on development. This can happen within one single session or across a whole project or programme. But often projects are stepping stones for participants, and can lead to another experience. Funders often talk about the legacy of work undertaken, and a consideration of participant progression makes a project more meaningful to everyone involved.

Key quality indicators include:

  • A clear plan is in place for participant progression within a project / programme
  • Participant progress is highlighted and celebrated in each session
  • The potential legacies of the activity have been discussed at an early stage
  • Participants are signposted to other projects or programmes once the activity is over

Your Space – note down the key quality indicators for your project / programme in relation to this principle, or use the worksheet to make a personal map:
