Comedia Publishers, Gloucester
1997-2000 – Francois Matarasso
This report offers an account of the evidence we have found of social impacts arising from participation in the arts and, of some of the methods used in the research. It is the first large-scale attempt, in the UK at least, to come to grips with these issues and our intention has not been to give definitive answers but….. to ask the questions more clearly. If others, and especially those who work in the field, are encouraged to take forward this general study into more specific areas, it will have succeeded in its purpose.
