What is Community Arts and Design? edit

Community arts and design stretches across a wide variety of media including theatre, contemporary arts, dance, music, art, design and fine art. The emphasis is on encouraging the use of the arts to support the development of communities to encourage social, cultural or environmental benefits. It is all about what the arts can do for society.
