Friday, 30 September14h30 - 15h30Main Hall - Factory Lisbon Cultural PoliciesTalk

Participatory arts do not only entail a creative process that involves audiences and communities – they enable shared and democratic processes of decision-making and ownership. Participatory arts is not only about changing an individual’s life – it is about empowering individuals and communities. It could be about revolutionising societies as a whole. In this panel, we take from the experience of those who develop participatory community arts projects to realise the potential of these processes were they to be global and permanent.
