From the Foreword of ‘Exploring Change – Arts Provision and Community Arts in Rural Northern Ireland’
“Community Arts Partnership and the Rural Community Network through the Exploring Change project initiated conversations with arts organisations, community arts organisations, arts facilitators, artists and participants in artistic activities in rural Northern Ireland over a period of 18 months.
The aim was to extract primary information regarding the state of arts provision and particularly community arts provision in rural Northern Ireland.
Participants in those discussions also included Arts officers from local councils, representatives from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, advisors for local politicians and representatives from Arts centres in the larger towns.”
