Have you ever wondered what makes a successful community arts project? What are the essential components to begin with? And how do all participants ensure that their needs and goals are met?
As a complement to our popular community-engaged arts workbook, Framing Community, the Ontario Arts Council (OAC) is pleased to release a new series of audio interviews with experienced practitioners. Four community-engaged artists share their experiences and advice:

Emmy Pantin of Community Story Strategies on digital storytelling at Toronto’s Four Villages Community Health Centre.
Angola Murdoch of Lookup Theatre on Talk to Youth Lately, a social circus program for youth focused on emotional well-being.
Cheryl L’Hirondelle on Why the Caged Bird Sings, a songwriting and recording workshop she offers in correctional institutions.
There are three ways to access these interviews:
