Community Project Evaluations
Common Ground Evaluation
June 2011, Conroy
Safe Ground’s Common Ground was a nine month community project that brought young people, older adults, prisoners and young offenders into a creative dialogue with each other. Using drama, percussion and storytelling, participants were enabled to share their experiences of community considering the project’s key themes of identity, responsibility and cooperation.
All participants were enabled to explore and share experiences of community, and to reflect on the similarities and differences of their experiences. In doing so, barriers between the groups were broken down, with perceptions and preconceptions subsequently changing. In addition, all of the groups benefitted from a high-quality arts experience, receiving specialist input from freelance practitioners.
