Artists, community artists, therapists and teachers use arts practices in their work with individuals and groups in schools, hospitals, prisons, care homes and a wide variety of community contexts and public spaces. Through development of the concept of socially engaged arts (SEA) this project considers the boundaries, meeting points and divergences in this diversity of related practices via two interlinked areas of inquiry, 1) the nature of collaborative, participatory and inclusive arts practices and 2) the relationships between aesthetics and ethics. The SEA project will engage with questions related to these areas of inquiry across a range of art forms, practices and disciplines.
