Abstract

This article will consider the continued relevance of the ArtWorks Cymru Quality Principles (QP), devised in 2015, to the education of community music and participatory arts students. This high quality framework was developed by ArtWorks Cymru to move the conversation forward with regards to quality participatory arts provision in Wales, and is a uniquely placed resource to inform and guide students’ professional development. This is a particularly influential resource for my role as Course Leader on the BA(Hons) Creative and Therapeutic Arts degree at the University of South Wales, where I am responsible for developing a curriculum which prepares participatory artists to work inclusively and effectively through their art form. This article will explore the relevance of the QP to a collaborative project with a local inclusive theatre company, considering how to develop quality in the inception, planning, delivery and evaluation of a participatory arts project.
