Cultural Democracy

Cultural Democracy

Arts Council England has commissioned another round of creative programmes, with the collaboration of creative organisations in the UK, following the success of Everyday Creativity in 2016.

The programme has been designed to be a revolutionary approach to arts and culture and how it engages everyone in an active setting. This focuses on how people count methods and habits as culture, its settings, participation, and the recipient of the given culture. This is no new concept, but this has been around and has been gaining focus in arts and culture. However, this concept has been seen as unorthodoxy to what has already been established, especially in the arts community.

The council has then tasked creative organisations to create another round of studies and programmes that would explore how creative organisations have become most innovative in their area of coverage, and how their studies and practices engage to what is called Cultural Democracy in the communities’ hearts.

A copy of the 2018 report of this case study has been published on the Arts Council England website and everyone can access it. The report has been collected recently and reflects on how creativity debacles on the given social norms and created breakthroughs in embracing the culture as it is – whether it diversifies culture and is innovative to what has already been experienced by the society.
