An open letter on the importance of participatory arts


ArtsChain is an informal network of participatory arts, community arts and socially engaged practitioners, based in the North of England.

It's members have written an open letter to The Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and the Arts Council England advocating for the important role of the participatory arts movement for the arts and culture in this country in the next ten years. It has been written to capture the views of smaller organisations and individuals working in this area as freelancers or micro-businesses.

ArtsChain are asking people who work in the socially engaged, participatory arts and community arts sectors to sign this letter to show your support – whether you are freelance / sole trader, run a small organisation (less than 20 employees) or a micro-enterprise.
