Is this the best it can be?

Published in Features on 29 Aug 2016

Is this the best it can be? is a new toolkit that can be used by anyone delivering arts and creative learning through collaborative or participatory projects and programmes.

Developed by ArtWorks Scotland, the ideas and approaches featured within the toolkit have been developed through collaborative engagement with artists, professionals from other sectors and participants working in this area.

The toolkit is made up of a guidance document and a set of downloadable tools. It will ideally be used from the start of a project, but the questions can provoke reflection at any point in a project or programme. The core of the toolkit is a set of prompt questions to assist you in the creation of a ‘compass’ for your creative partnership - to help consider what is important and what can be improved.

Rather than defining or limiting an understanding of what good work is, it encourages a culture of dialogue, reflection and continuous improvement.
