About this issue:

This issue of the Engage Journal investigates the relationships between organisations, audiences and the artists who are invited to develop their practice and/or make new work in a specific context and for a defined purpose.

The projects embrace placements, residencies, community initiatives, collaborative projects, regeneration and commissions. Consequently these projects demand shared objectives, negotiation, empathy and sensitivity to the ideas and ambitions of all involved. The public-facing nature of most projects poses challenges, including the different objectives of arts and non-arts partners. Increasingly, artists are invited to work for an organisation with a participation agenda, with the requirement for the artist to work with or collaborate with audiences.
