Explores the complexities and challenges of sharing power.
This think-piece unearths and explores some of the complexities and challenges of sharing power, drawing on thinking from Creative People and Place directors, community managers and other team members, artists and project critical friends.
Some of the big questions that underpin many collaborative practices are unpicked: power, reciprocity, cultural capital, participation, values, ethics, collaboration, and politics. Throughout are contextual reminders and cautionary notes to think about when aiming for truly participatory relationships in the arts. For a practical companion piece to Power Up, see the Shared Decision-Making Toolkit.
