OUR MAIN AIM
We are committed to creating artistic work that relates to the Black experience in Scotland and which also explores universal human aspirations and follies and to make such work accessible to the widest range of audiences in Scotland and beyond.
PAASFest, is a collaborative project bringing together multiple partners and participants to deliver a highly visible performance arts programme in public spaces.
A key aim is to create a platform for access and participation for all, and to programme opportunities, including professional development, for artists and cultural workers.
We have set out to pursue the following outcomes:
“Arts professionals and their communities are
engaged and flourish together”
“People who live in Scotland are enriched by participating in
an enjoyable and memorable experience”
People who visit Scotland are attracted to return
We have a particular interest in our first outcome and our focus at this time, in the short term, is on the ‘engaged’ part of that outcome. We see the ‘flourishing’ part as a growth process and requires longer term monitoring and evaluation. We are interested, especially with our GRAMNet partners at Glasgow University, in exploring ways of capturing, measuring, analyzing and evaluating the various levels of ‘engagement’ and ‘flourishing’ processes and sharing this knowledge will all interested.
