These arts practices and activities bring artists together with specific groups of people in a mutually beneficial two-way engagement that nurtures and values the different ideas, experiences and skills of all involved, providing the highest quality experience, artistically and personally, for all the participants at every stage of the project, from planning through to evaluation.

The Arts Council understands 'community' in its broadest sense i.e. a group which either lives or works in a specific locality, such as a housing estate, a rural area, or a prison, or which visits a specific place on a regular basis e.g. a café or a museum.  In addition, it understands 'community' to encompass groups that share a particular interest, for example music, the environment or migrant rights.

The Arts Council is committed to assisting artists of all disciplines to make work of excellence, including those who base their practice on social engagement and collaboration.
