3

Support collaborative arts practice with and about marginalised communities

The Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme will foster artistic diversity for the development of collaborative arts in Europe

4

Encourage more festivals and venues to commission collaborative arts projects

This will enhance understanding of collaborative arts as a dynamic arts practice and highlight the diversity of collaborative arts projects taking place across Europe and in the partner countries as well as creating more opportunities for artists, and offering more high quality arts experiences for diverse communities and broader audiences in the process.

5

Initiate a self-sustaining European network for collaborative arts practices

A key motivation in the formation of CAPP is the desire to strengthen European
cultural and creative organisations representing collaborative arts and socially
concerned art so that through better networking they can provide increased
professional opportunities for new groups of artists.

Audience Development

Understanding how participants experience collaborative art projects and
how that can lead them to experiment with other cultural forms or to participate in
other cultural activities is a key element
