Funding: £181,500 

A+, a partnership strategy pooling the best of CPD from a-n, The Artists Information Company and Artquest, will work with Engage, Foundation for Community Dance, National Association of Writers in Education, and Sound Sense. As national strategic organisations these reach 24,600 music, dance, writing and visual artists working in participatory settings.

A strategic alliance to network knowledge about national occupational standards, codes of conduct, research, professional development and routes to professional practice across art forms.  Working with artist employers, government, HE and training providers across the UK, the programme will add value to what the partners already achieve in delivering support for artists and aims to support more of a collective voice for participatory artists across artforms. 

The programme is in three phases:

  • 2011: Mapping research on already existing standards, codes of conduct, and quality assurance frameworks across artforms. Consultation to develop relevant research and output for phases 2 and 3 to support artists working in participatory settings where they need it most
  • 2012: Comparisons of methodologies and pedagogies in different settings, and UK wide research on what is needed for improvement on progression routes for artists
  • 2013-14: Conference and sharing of research findings and putting in place systems for shared CPD resources across partner organisations. A continued legacy of shared professional framework for participatory artists.
