In October 2015 our Director Eloise Malone was invited by Plymouth University to give a public lecture on quality practice in social realm arts projects.  This is a brief essay summarising the key points from the lecture, including

 

  • how strong design, high expectations for artistic quality, and methodological excellence can create cultural programmes, projects and events which can make life-changing differences
  • why poorly designed, unambitious, inexpert practice can be damaging for participants, limit their recovery, reinforce stereotypes, and undermine policy and services
  • a framework for a techniqueless collaborative methodology which maximizes participants’ experience and the sustainability of the programme
  • how these ideas fit with current policy and ideology including the present UK government, and work on quality practice by Arts Council England
