Abstract:

This toolkit examines the role of art institutions in art outreach, It is designed to be used by a mixed group of practitioners working within art and rehabilitation – this may include artists, therapists, academics, service users, service providers, funders and commissioners.

ART vs REHAB is a platform for people working in art and rehabilitation; including those working creatively in addiction, the criminal justice system, homelessness and mental health. It is a catalyst for criticality and change in the field, based on the principles of open innovation and collaborative practice.

In June 2012 artists, therapists, academics, service users, service providers, funders and commissioners attended focus groups on a number of different themes. The focus groups were carefully curated to include a broad range of angles and experience. Participants contributed a mix of tasks, quotes and further reading suggestions to the focus groups, which formed the basis of each kit. At the end critical toolkits were produced for each theme.

With a large proportion of social art projects being funded via galleries and museums, this tool kit helps to examine the affect these institutions may have on such projects. It explores conflicts of interest that may arise when working with institutions, identify good models for this relationship, and explore alternative ways of delivering such projects.
