After You Are Two: exemplary practice in participatory arts with older people
Posted by Connected Culture on 16 July 2013
Here at Connected Culture we love to hear about people recognising adult participatory arts and earlier this year The Baring Foundation published ‘After You Are Two: exemplary practice in participatory arts with older people’ by Kate Organ.
This was based on visits to a wide range of projects funded by the Baring Foundation. Arts Adviser, Kate Organ has sought to distil what is important in working with older people and the significance it has for an artist's own practice. She asked: What role does the participatory arts have with older people in the wider public realm? Who is in control - the artist or the participant? Is it useful to think of a field of practice that specialises in Arts and Older People? The publication contains Kate Organ’s thoughts and findings from all of her visits including her encounter with Spare Tyre.
