Guide to Impacting Communities through the Arts (2021)

Developed by the National Arts Council (NAC), a Guide to Impacting Communities through the Arts offers tips and considerations for approaching community arts initiatives. Engaging communities in and through the arts can bring communities together, bridge diverse groups and strengthen social networks. This guide is applicable to artists, community partners, and anyone with an interest in engaging communities meaningfully in and through the arts. 

This four-pager condenses the main learning points from our 24 arts engagement case studies (Vol. 1 and 2), and offers a quick frame of reference when thinking about initiating a project, mapping the steps of the journey, and developing meaningful approaches for all involved.
