Funders are under increasing pressure to show good value for money for their grants and no more so than in the arts, heritage, and culture sector. It’s more often the case that grants have conditions attached which stipulate community engagement in the arts, heritage, and culture sector when they are funded.

To be seen to be doing so

It’s not only the case that organisations within the arts, heritage, and culture sector are expected to engage with their community but also the case that they should be seen doing so.

Arts, heritage, and culture sectors

If you work in the arts, heritage, and cultural sectors you may ask yourself these questions.

How do I show our funders that I’m engaging with the local community?

How do I maximise promotional opportunities with these projects?

How do I find content for our social media presence?

How do I encourage the local community to engage?

How do I do all that and still have a smile on my face?

Community engagement in the arts, heritage, and culture optimising video and film 

Take a look at Absolutely. The short film was made at the Lowewood Museum in Hertfordshire with members of the museum Youth Panel.

One size doesn’t fit all

There are lots of ways of using film and video to not only promote community engagement in the arts, heritage, and culture sector.  We regularly work within this sector and have created various types of films and videos for museums, galleries and heritage based projects.  We create each and every project to specifically fit the needs of each project and commissioner.

Are you still engaged?

We think that being engaged doesn’t have to be dull and boring. What do you think?
