A new online resource from Artworks Cymru in Wales aims to help arts practitioners develop a better understanding of the measures that improve the experience of participants. A set of core principles aimed at helping arts professionals to reflect on the quality of their participatory work. The aim of the initiative is to create “a way to talk about quality that can be used by everyone who is making participatory arts”.
Nine quality principles have emerged, grouped under three headings: intention, activity and people. Although set up in Wales, this will be of interest to all participatory artists.
Artworks Cymru has published a Quality Principles Resource to help arts practitioners think about quality within their projects. It lists the core principles and suggests key indicators, as well as providing a set of templates and tools for using them.
