Artists contribute in communities
  • Artists focus on possibilities, on talent of individuals, not on problems of groups
  • Artists involve different senses: image, sound, movement, they reach different levels instead of only the ratio
  • Working with art is having fun together, connecting people in a positive manner
  • The process of working with art empowers children and adults: they discover new talents and strengths nobody had seen before. Parents become proud of their children, their community
  • Showing their self made art in public lifts the neighbourhood spirit: there is more than you see at first glance

  • Product/process innovation – capability of starting from a different angle, all over again
  • Dealing with a complex & unpredictable context – improvisation (music & dance)
  • Better cooperation between workers – bringing people together through using different senses, different energies
  • Organisational diagnosis - art metaphores (Shakespeare play, directing an orchestra, etc.), artist-in-residence
  • ! The process is as important as the product !

artist as teacher consultant cocreator maybe but always an artist
Artist as teacher? Consultant? Cocreator? Maybe, but always an artist

Do not turn artists into what they are not: social workers, consultants, etc.

Artist do not provide all the solutions

Artists need to learn new skills for this work:

Reframing their own skills (f.e. dancer), learning about organisational issues, learning to manage the process of involvement (this is not taught in art schools!)
