Take A Part are experts in socially engaged audience development for contemporary art. Based in Plymouth, we work in areas that have been historically underserved and don’t usually engage in the arts. Our long-term, embedded process starts with listening and supporting communities to set agendas for projects that reflect and address community need and diversity. Our genuine processes with communities leads us to co-commissioning exceptional national and international artists in those communities. We embed contemporary arts practice in the process of regeneration. Crucially, the process of creating the work itself is as important as what is created. Our purpose is to engage, educate and inform new audiences in contemporary arts while developing policy and setting agendas for neighbourhood regeneration initiatives in Plymouth. Take A Part’s work contributes directly to the social infrastructure of the city.
