We have developed the ‘People, Place and Participation’ commissioning models, which will shape the way we work with artists. The models articulate our measures of ‘success’, i.e. what we expect from each commission, and will be used as a basis for evaluation. People Express is using three different commissioning models to help us attract and develop work with the widest and most diverse range of artists.
Models for 2018 to 2022:
PEOPLE: a combination of using the artist’s talent and practice to empower meaningful engage- ment in the arts, and inspire everyone at all levels of confidence and abilities to undertake their own artistic journey developing practice and creating their own work.
PLACE : site-specific artist commissions where the artist’s work reflects the uniqueness of the local community and place, with artists recruited and selected by community panels.
PARTICIPATION: smaller interpretative commissions based on a theme, concept or value for public festivals, events or workshops or to engage specific target groups or audiences.
