PAL (Participatory Arts London): a collective voice for people that design, produce and facilitate participatory arts in London. Reflecting on our practice; pursuing peer-to-peer learning.
 
On 12th December 2011, representatives from 13 of London's participatory arts organisations, including five Arts Council NPOs, met to discuss the challenges we face as arts educationalists in a fast-moving social and economic environment. We are continuing to grow and our network now includes over 90 representatives from a variety of organisations as well as freelance practitioners.
 
Developed from Independent Theatre Council's (ITC) Education Managers’ Forum, Participatory Arts London was formed to give a collective voice to people that design, produce and facilitate participatory arts in London. We are concerned about the lack of representation in our sector and are keen to start a wider conversation with creative practitioners and strategic and cultural organisations. We are eager to use our strength as a group to reflect on our own practice and pursue peer-to-peer learning and professional development, using our findings for our own discussions about value, impact and quality as well as long-term discussions with the wider sector.
 
We invite anyone working in Participatory Arts to join our conversation, whoever they may be.
