Inquiry into the Civic Role of Arts Organisations

We've been selected to be a case study for the Gulbenkien Civic Arts Enquiry. The Inquiry seeks to increase awareness of the civic role that arts organisations play nationally and in their communities. 

Through research and consultation they want to develop understanding of what constitutes 'next' practice and create a movement of organisations committed to demonstrating it. Encounters is very pleased to have the simplicity and complexity of our work: to bring people together and to create the conditions for a creative, caring and connected world in which all can learn to flourish together, leading sustainable, expressive lives within the earth's ecological limits.
