In September and October 2017, we held nine consultation meetings as part of an evaluation of our Artists in Communities and Artists in Schools programs.

During the review process, we heard concerns that related both to the environment in which communities/schools and artists were trying to develop effective partnerships and to the ways in which the funding program was creating additional challenges for them. Those concerns revealed some consistent themes and resulted in recommendations and proposed responses from the Arts Board, which are outlined in the Artists in Communities/Artists in Schools: Review Process and Recommendations document.
