Community Arts Projects: Planning, Fundraising and Delivering | Goldsmiths University
This exciting short course explores the core components of developing and delivering community arts projects. As opportunities are now limited with cuts to the majority of funding sources, projects must be innovate and timely. Our experienced team have designed this course to ensure you are well placed to overcome funding obstacles, and deliver successful community arts projects.
This course is ideal for you if you are a youth worker, teacher, community group or work in the charity sector and wish to delve into the complex issues that arise when developing a community project. We’ll investigate these issues, uncovering relevant solutions throughout the course. Weekly workshops will explore ways to engage a community through photography, as well as other arts practice. We will examine key themes such as identity, gender, home, belonging, equality, citizenship and everyday life through live examples of successful community arts projects. These examples will be drawn upon to extrapolate best practice in the design, development and delivery of a community arts project. This will be achieved through seminar discussions, individual and group exercises, designed to help you to develop your own projects through to completion.
