|Abstract||The arts are often considered to be at the periphery of the community development process and only a minor player in regenerating areas. Despite increasing globalization, communities are beginning to recognize their own identity, culture, traditional art forms and the value of working together at a local level. This paper is based on a recent study which shows that the arts have a role in regeneration and at a local level can be used as a tool within a wider community development programme.
|Metodology||Analysis of 4 case studies
|Findings||"The main findings to emerge from the fieldwork are considered in terms of the importance of community consultation, involvement and ownership; the measurement of the links between ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ impacts; the use of the arts within regeneration policies; and methods used in the evaluation of arts projects."
