Audiences and and pt.6 … the Community, the State & a specific kind of Headache

Posted in Audiences and by chrisfremantle on August 17, 2020

This essay explores the sharp issues around Cultural Democracy and tests this challenges with some key people working on the ground.

In particular the reflections on arts institutions and the temporariness of local action (discussed through the example of Showroom but could equally have been Tramway).

Also the exploration of the edge between ‘arts’ and ‘third sector’ is interesting. There are organisations which configure themselves straddling this boundary (see for instance Center for Urban Pedagogy, Project Row Houses, Glasgow Women’s Library). But the funders find this difficult to understand because the conventional ‘success criteria’ are apparently different.
