Artists, arts organisations, policy makers, funders, employers, commissioners and training providers across the UK are part of a rich and thriving tradition of participatory arts.

ArtWorks: Developing Practice in Participatory Settings is a Paul Hamlyn Foundation Special Initiative set up to build on this tradition by strengthening support for artists.

Between July 2014 and spring 2015, we’ll be publishing findings from four years’ research to show how, together, we can give artists the support they need and bring new benefits for everyone with an interest in arts in participatory settings.

We want you to join us. Sign up for our regular research briefings and add your voice to the conversation.



ArtWorks: Developing Practice in Participatory Settings supports the continuing professional development of artists working in participatory settings.
