ARU Magic Me - ARCH Project - Dare To Imagine

Full Report 17 • photo consent, press and communications, partner and funder credits • crediting artists, intellectual property and rights of artworks made The project would run for four years and regular reviews were planned. Everyone who participated in the ARU research also signed the research consent forms. Research & Development phase From November 2019 to March 2020 arts organisations spent time in their partner home, getting to know people, learning more about how things worked, and experimenting with creative activities and ideas. Their goal was to shape an appropriate, longer residency to take place in phase 2. Each arts partner describes their work and outcomes in section 4. Cohort Day 3: Reflections on R&D The regular cohort days were intended to share experiences and learning and provide peer and specialist support. The third took place on 2 April 2020 to review this first R&D phase and share the research findings to inform the longer residencies. However, by this time the country had gone into lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic and all ARCH meetings moved online. Photo: Rich Rusk
