Case studies and tools for evaluating community engagement activities that engage through the arts.
Lecture by theatre maker and artist Lucy Neal, author of Playing for Time (available from Oberon Books Ltd.). The handbook, written with over 60 artists, identifies collaborative arts practices in a range of community contexts and provides a useful breakdown of principles and practice for adaptation.
A summary of research and consultation with the community dance sector in the UK designed to address the ‘quality’ of artistic practice, and highlight the criteria that people were using in practice in their work, rather than seeking to define a prescriptive evaluation approach.
These recommendations are intended as a tool to help research staff and community representatives expand and deepen existing partnerships, and forge new ones, with the ultimate goal of facilitating effective community engagement in all aspects of clinical trials research.
