Understanding professional development for community artists

ArtWorks Alliance (AWA) is a strategic alliance to share best practice about national occupational standards, codes of conduct, professional development and routes to practice across artforms.

AWA is a third-tier network of organisations, working together to carry out decisive, collective action. As one of the founder members of ArtWorks Alliance, and now a strategic partner of the alliance, Sound Sense supports AWA’s mission: better participatory arts work.

AWA is made up of organisations a-n, Artquest, ArtWorks Cymru, ArtWorks London, ArtWorks Scotland, ArtWorks North-East, Axisweb, engage, National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE), People Dancing and Sound Sense. Together we reach 24,600 music, dance, writing and visual artists working in participatory settings.
