Development of new Arts Council Policy in the area of Arts Participation
In the coming months, the Arts Council will be meeting with and hearing from artists, arts organisations, cross-sector partners and others interested in the area of Arts Participation, in order to inform the development of a new Arts Council policy in this area.
The Arts Council understands Arts Participation to include a broad range of participatory, collaborative, community and socially engaged arts practices, and has supported work in this field for many decades.
Approaches to practice in the area of Arts Participation have evolved and expanded significantly in Ireland and internationally, and we are very much looking forward to hearing your views.
A survey will open in July and we will also host consultation events in the autumn.
For more information and updates, please visit the Arts Participation webpage and keep an eye on the Arts Council newsletter and social media channels. Please also contact Erin McNulty, Arts Participation Assistant, with any queries.
