I was in London on Tuesday to meet Catherine Bunting for an update on the Understanding Everyday Participation research project. We talked about how the lack of progress against the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s public service agreement (PSA) target to raise the levels of participation in the arts had inspired the development of the Participation Manifesto (a partnership between Voluntary Arts, the National Campaign for the Arts, the National Association of Local Government Arts Officers and others), the creation of the original Up for Arts project in 2007 and the commissioning of the Our Creative Talent research in 2008. We looked at how these three initiatives had eventually led to the development of Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places programme and how the Up for Arts project model developed by Voluntary Arts might contribute both to Creative People and Places and to the Understanding Everyday Participation project.
