"If one definition of what we do is 'arts work with people' then which people? And what sort of relationship do we have with them?"

In this article from the Sound Sense archive, Kathryn Deane explores real life issues of community engagement alongside Lee Higgins, then Music Development Worker at Peterborough Arts Centre, and Katie Tearle, Glyndebourne's Head of Education and Community.

In this double-page interview, Search & Reflect author John Stevens discusses creative freedom, improvisation and the nature of community music.

"To me community music really happens when somebody feels that they have got the energy, inspiration and skill to go and help people to create music for themselves in a free way. And whatever it turns out to be, that is the identity of that group. It doesn't have to have anything to do with what we see as being officially music. There's all this potential for new music that none of us has heard, because it's too wide for us to conceive of how it could be. That's where I see some of the aid to what needs to be a re-balance in society."
