Strengthening community resilience through innovative creative arts-led strategies
This project situates the arts and creative practice at the centre of resilience strategies. While innovative technologies and new methods of land management are vital, governmental and institutional investment in these initiatives will be less effective if they ignore the diverse knowledge and expertise of arts and cultural research, in partnership with local communities.
Bringing the varied insights and techniques of the arts – including visual art, dance, music, film, performance and design – into our investigations and policies around strengthening community resilience, we will discover new ways of connecting diffuse knowledges, and expand understandings of what a community is.
