All Navigator partners (a-n, Artquest, Engage, Foundation for Community Dance, Sound Sense and NAWE) have lodged this bibliogaphy on their websites so that it is freely and widely available as part of ArtWorks commitment to supporting a wider community of practice.
ArtWorks Cymru have produced a series of reports emerging from the audit and consultation process they undertook during the first phase of their programme:
'Fuelling the Necessary Revolution'
Over the last two years, Mission Models Money has been supporting six groups of arts and cultural organisations in Scotland and the North East of England who have been piloting new ways of collaborating.
Learning from the pilots has been turned into a suite of materials, the first of which, 'Fuelling the Necessary Revolution' has just been published. It has been written especially for public and private funders in order to persuade them to encourage and support more collaboration in the sector.
The report will be of interest to anyone interested in collaborative and partnership working.
