Implementing the Manifesto for Participation in the Arts & Crafts by Robin Simpson

On Tuesday afternoon I chaired a meeting of the Participation Manifesto Development Group. This was our first meeting since we formally launched the manifesto at the NALGAO Conference last October. More than 240 organisations and individuals have now joined the www.participationinthearts.net website to support the manifesto and continue the debate about how to increase participation in the arts. The level of interest and the range of types of organisation signing up to the website has been very encouraging but we agreed we need to do more to encourage the kind of debate and sharing of experience about arts participation that we hoped to create. The Participation Manifesto Development Group is also hoping to run an annual conference on arts participation to bring together the broad range of organisations involved in the development of the manifesto to continue to look at how we can work together to increase arts participation. We decided to plan the first of these conferences to take place in November 2010.

Robin Simpson.
