Connected Conversations; Passing It On
Connected Conversations; Passing It On was a series of four roundtable discussions examining participatory arts practice through the voices of artists, commissioners, participants and thinkers. These roundtable discussions took place during January and February 2014 at the RSA.
The roundtables were a series of conversations that included the spectrum of all involved in the diverse field of participatory arts. These conversations involved those engaged with arts in health, art in prisons, arts in regeneration, art and social cohesion, youth arts, voluntary and amateur practice as well as emerging forms that blur the lines between the creative and the audience.
Connected Conversations; Passing It On was guided by the participants’ unique perspective and enabled a peer-to-peer discussion for those engaged in different projects to exchange learning, insights and challenges. Participants shared projects, ideas, experiences and things that inspired them. Each roundtable was artistically interpreted by an artist and then shared with the subsequent roundtable. The artistic responses to these conversations will be an integral way of deepening understanding.
Artistic responses to the roundtables will be available to view here shortly.
Connected Conversations: Passing it on was the inaugural project of Arts & Society supported by Arts Council England and the RSA delivered in partnership with Connected Culture, a London based network celebrating participatory arts that is facilitated through Spare Tyre.
This project was kindly supported by The Arts Council England and the RSA.
