Who cares? is an innovative visual arts project exploring issues of care through commissions and residencies co-produced with communities, developing and sharing expertise, learning from peers, disseminating and creating legacy of enriched practice & improved audience development skills.

Who Cares? are working together to share approaches to audience engagement and development, growing and sharing lessons, learning and doing. Partner cultural organisations will develop best practice in artist development, widening participation, growing audiences and evaluating the impact of our methods. Associates will add value.

Delivery will be of projects in the intersection between art, education & social space, taking arts as a medium for experimentation & action, impacting unique elements of each partner location, bringing together elements based on common themes & shared interest. Using transverse processes between artists, facilitators & active agents in social space, helping build a common future holding environmental justice, freedom & civic rights as a backbone to build space to imagine, create & explore.

The focus will be on shared interests in audience development primarily for those least engaged in the arts, through two years of workshops, visits, artist projects & an online platform. The project consists of small organisations keen to focus on a human approach to audiences, taking into account & learning from unique contexts, needs & challenges faced by the different audiences.

Care as an operating principle intersects with concerns & challenges each partner faces. Care is the chosen rationale for co-producing art with participants, for how we manage institutions and how we care for each other, for environments & for artists, linking methodologies.

Who Cares? are small organisations of varying size, capacity & local conditions, from diverse geopolitical corners of Europe, N & S, former E & W, keen to collaborate, learn from each other & share learning.
