Half- day seminar at VicHealth, Carlton
A half-day seminar was directed at researchers working in community based arts programs. It addressed issues about the process and application of research through formal presentation and discussion.
How can our work:
– lead to better outcomes for audiences, participants and communities?
– engage practitioners, arts organisations and local government?
– impact funding priorities?
– influence policy decisions?
