Calling question: How can participatory arts practice empower people and communities?

Context for the question & who the event is for:

We will open this event with provocations from our guest speakers based on their diverse experiences putting co-production and shared decision-making into practice. Throughout the session we will get to grips with the complexity of power sharing and ask the following questions:

  • Who has access to culture? What is cultural democracy, and how does it work in practice?
  • How can we use our participatory arts practice to extend ownership over arts and culture?
  • How do we go about organisational and structural power sharing?

Speakers to be announced soon…
