Join us to share and discuss rights-focused approaches to arts participation. The network takes place quarterly, raising questions and discussing how a rights-focused approach might:
• Engage those most marginalised, excluded or discriminated against
• Address the power imbalances that create these conditions
• Advocate for structural and systemic change at personal, community, organisational and societal levels
• Highlight some of the ethical dilemmas of arts engagement work
