Community Engagement Approaches

During the Brierley Hillness project we used nine different artistic mediums or participatory approaches to engage with a broad spectrum of local people – all designed to get them talking about Brierley Hill.

We had always intended to use different artistic medium to engage people; but to increase the number of people we were involving in the project we added an evening events programme hosted by Artspace, and interviewed people on the streets.

Depending on your interest, you can navigate around Community Engagement Approaches  in two ways; focusing on:

  • The Approach we used (i.e. different artistic medium or activity)
  • The Age Group (i.e. engaging with young people, older people, children…)

You can get an overview of both in the list below.

The Nine Approaches

Within each approach we tell you how we ran our workshops and the lessons we learnt from them.

Why not share your approaches? Post other ideas and activities which work and get people actively engaged in talking about where they live.
