Networking: Artworks Alliance for participatory artists

A new umbrella organisation has been established to support individual participatory artists.

The Artworks Alliance has been developed from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation funded Artworks scheme to support the development of those working in community arts, socially-engaged arts, voluntary arts, and arts in education and learning.

Founding members of ArtWorks Alliance are the leading artform organisations for professional artists working in participatory settings: a-n, Artquest, engage (for visual artists); NAWE (literature); People Dancing (formerly the Foundation for Community Dance); and Sound Sense (music) – who between them represent some 24,000 participatory artists – together with former “Pathfinders” of the ArtWorks Special Initiative (ArtWorks Cymru, ArtWorks London, ArtWorks Scotland, ArtWorks North-East).
