Arts-based engagement: a guide for community groups, artists and researchers

Posted in Development

Artists, researchers and communities are increasingly using creative methods to inform, inspire and involve people with research. Their work draws on the arts – from theatre and film to dance and photography – to engage audiences with research that matters to them.

Though these creative projects are happening in lots of different areas, but there is a lack of systematic and consolidated learning about how the approaches work in practice.

To bridge this knowledge gap, THIS Institute has produced a guide that explores how arts-based approaches can be effectively used to help engage people with research.

The guide is for community groups, artists, researchers and anyone interested in using the arts for public engagement, and uses practical case studies to highlight evidence from arts-based projects.
