Closing a community-engaged project with care

Tamara Lee, Sarah Peters

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


Co-authors Lee and Peters collaborated across 2019-2021 on a community-engaged project with Carclew's ExpressWay Arts. They ask, when your creative practice is premised on relationship building, belonging and care, how do you step away from projects responsibly, meaningfully and carefully? This article explores how establishing rituals of closure in every workshop, explicitly naming the ending, acknowledging how the creative relationship may change after the projects conclusion, and celebrating the work, are four approaches that can support facilitators to finish projects with care.
