Opportunity: Call out for ‘This is what we do’ case studies for participatory arts

The University of Sunderland is developing an ‘Introduction to Participatory Arts’ MOOC (Massive Online Open Course). Funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, it’ll include many materials from the original national ArtWorks programme as well as more recent resources created by ArtWorks legacy projects.

We’re seeking to add to content we’ve already got with new video and audio case studies of interesting practice from the last two years. These can be single or cross art form/media projects and from any – and every – type of participatory setting. We’re particularly interested in case studies that explain the process of project working from the viewpoint of facilitating artists, in the following areas:

  • where things don’t go to plan and what’s learnt from this
  • international/transnational projects
  • LGBTQ projects
  • work with people who are refugees or seeking asylum
  • work that has happened with a group over an extended period of time

Small grants (£300-£500) are available to support people’s time editing existing materials or recording interviews about the work. We’re looking for a maximum of 10 minutes of material as a short video or audio piece, with additional useful supporting written/visual materials and links. The University can help with editing/signposting/subtitling if necessary.

Interested? Contact me at Caroline.Mitchell@sunderland.ac.uk and I’ll send a detailed briefing sheet and arrange a phone conversation if necessary.

Deadline for completed case studies: 8 May 2017.
