A philosophy for community-based, participatory arts practice: A narrative inquiry
This article presents a single narrative of 'Veronica Blue' who is a professional actor and participatory arts practitioner. Veronica specializes in working with people from disadvantaged backgrounds and amongst people with mental health problems. Veronica has developed a theoretical underpinning for her work together with a strong philosophy for practice as a facilitator in community arts settings. Narrative methodology is encouraged for future applied arts and health research, as its focus upon storytelling is philosophically consistent with participatory arts approaches.
