FAO PARTICIPATORY, COMMUNITY & SOCIALLY ENGAGED ARTS PEOPLE
Freelancers, organisations, microbizs & those who value participation.
There’s some important stuff happening in our sector at the moment thanks to ArtsChain, so please read this post, act and then share the hell out of it!
An open letter has been written to government full details here advocating for the importance of participatory arts, and there’s now a meeting with Arts Council England scheduled to discuss issues.
There’s a few things that you can do to help/get your voice heard:
1. Join 700+ individuals and organisations in signing the open letter, found here. The more of us that publicly stand by the value and importance of participatory arts, the better.
2. In preparation for this meeting with ACE, complete the survey as a freelance artist, organisation, or both, to share your concerns, experiences and ideas here.
Now please get this shared all over to those who need to see it and get involved.
Artschain are a small, unfunded voluntary network and we’re really grateful for all the support you can give!
