Transcript of AinC1 - Communities

Arts in the Community
1. Module guide
2. Meet some people
3. Discuss what we mean by 'Community'
4. Sign up for paid Role-play

“a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common”
“(the community) the people of a district or country considered collectively, especially in the context of social values and responsibilities; society”
You are in the Council arts dept and have to make decisions about which communities to support - with limited resources. What groups will you prioritise?
The following groups have all asked for some support

- Pre-school children
- The over 60’s
- Learning disabled adults
- People with mental health problems
- Recovering drug addicts
- The homeless
- Physically disabled children
- Single parent groups
- Disaffected teenagers
- Asylum seekers
- Ex servicemen’s support group
- Asian women’s group
- Amateur dramatic society
- Morris dance group
Why is one group more worthy of support than another?

What about people who might be part of more than one group, aren't they unfairly advantaged?

Do you think involvement in 'The Arts' should be for all or for the more deserving?

What about groups that get plenty of charitable support already?

What about groups that have a social purpose? Should there be an 'outcome' to the activity such as 'rehabilitation'?

"Community can be a warmly persuasive word to describe an existing set of relationships, or the warmly persuasive word to describe an alternative set of relationships" [Williams 1973, p76]
"What is most important, perhaps, is that unlike all other terms of social organisation... it never seems to be used unfavorably, and never to be given any positive opposing or distinguishing term" [Williams 1973, p76]
> Is 'community' a politically weighted word?
> What does he mean by warmly persuasive?
