DEVELOPING A PROJECT

There is no single formula for developing community arts projects. Each is idiosyncratic, its structure and process directly related to the nature of the community, the individuals involved, and the identified goal.

Comments and recommendations on this Web site are intended primarily for those trying to develop local arts projects on a grassroots level. You will find many references to collaboration in the material cited. This is only appropriate as healthy collaboration and cooperation lie at the heart of a healthy community.

A word about A Handbook for Rural Arts Collaborations*, excerpted throughout this section of the Web Site. This text was written for those interested in developing community and education projects in rural environments. Its information, however, is relevant for any community-based project. The collection of recommendations and practical tools can help you develop and implement a project that ends successfully and with those involved still friends.
