When a small community agency, the Preston Creative Living Centre, embarked upon the risky and exciting venture of engaging local people in artistic programs, it became a thriving centre for performances of theatre, music, circus, dance, visual arts, weaving and the crossover between factory production and artwork.The authors aim to inspire the reader, and give practical support in the development and administration of exciting, viable and fruitful community art. Beginning with a philosophy that informs decision-making and confronting the nitty-gritty of daily practice. A powerful discussion of the value of community arts and guide to creating partnerships between organisations, artists and communities to create community-based art.
