This guide is designed to support the growth and establishment of arts where people live, work and play. It aims to help sustain efforts to increase diverse touch-points for communities to encounter the arts, strengthen capability among stakeholders to develop a sense of community in neighbourhoods through the arts, and enhance a sense of place between residents and shared spaces through a diversity of arts and cultural experiences. Touch-points go beyond formal arts venues and involve partnerships with various institutions such as libraries, government agencies, civic centres, gardens and parks and community and recreational clubs. The guide offers a systematic approach to evaluate key spatial conditions and user activities in the neighbourhood and eases the process of choosing conductive settings for community arts and cultural activities.
