Arts Inc

Manifesto pledges: 1 and 4

Snapshot: Arts Inc was a programme of consultation, review and strategic development to find more effective ways for arts organisations specialist in inclusion to work together, establish how they could better work with VCS sectors and communities, and develop joint policies, strategies and initiatives.

Priorities: Exploring potential for a joined up evaluation system to develop a robust evidence base for all work with excluded or marginalised groups. Identifying a realistic approach to investment in well-trained, specialist leaders and a robust on-going support structure for them. Resourcing an annual Arts Inc Lab, one of the most exciting outcomes of the project. A film of the first lab is available here.

Coming up: The Arts Inc team is seeking ways to develop and embed the findings and recommendations from the Arts Inc initiative.

Key People: GDance, Art Shape, Fairgame Theatre Company.

Investors: GCC Performance Reward Grant.
