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. Topics include: the role of artists and facilitators; venues and facilities for community based arts; public art; arts based social enterprises; developing art strategies and policies; and evaluating community based art projects.
