A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

Quality in participatory arts

Posted by Toby Lowe on 09 December 2011

The Arts Council is starting to think about how to develop a quality framework for work with Children & Young People. They asked me to write a blog piece about this to help provoke conversation at a conference on 6th December.

That blog is here:


In the piece I argue that the crucial question is about quality in participatory practice, rather than simply about work with children and young people. If you agree, it would be great to get some supportive comments, so that we can build some momentum around the idea that ACE could support us to develop a quality framework for participatory arts.

See what you think - it would be great to add your voice to the conversation.
