Community based arts are a valuable tool for building strong communities and creating art works that are authentic and distinctive. There is also growing interest in the use of participatory art processes to enable new and dynamic relationships between artists and their audiences. This unit addresses the knowledge and skills needed to engage diverse communities in arts projects, and manage community creative processes.

The unit focuses on the design and management of art projects that enable collaborative and participatory processes. It considers this work from the context of arts organisations, government and the community sector. The unit also considers the role of community-based arts within the creative ecosystem. This broader perspective leads to the analysis of: planning and provision of arts venues; public art commissioning processes; arts based social enterprises; development of creative strategies and policies; and program evaluation.
