Social Art in Collections Toolkit

Resources created as part of ACE funded project

Framing Social Art in Collections

Created by Lady Kitt, in collaboration with artists Sarah Li, Sofia Barton and Dan Russell 


Supported by Arts & Heritage, Durham University Art Collection  and Warwickshire County Records Office

A digital toolkit aimed at curators, archivists, acquisition teams and social artists, considering  how socially engaged / collaboratively made / participatory work might be acquired by, cared for and contextualised in collections.

The toolkit is currently a draft made up of around 30 files (including text documents, maps, interactive white boards, images, spread sheets and videos) thematically arranged across five folders, all saved in Goole docs. There is also a visual navigation page hosted on Miro. Below are direct links to the google doc folder and Miro navigation page.


Over the next few months these  separate files will be collated into two key documents (one aimed at curators / acquisition teams and one aimed at social artists) with an accompanying folder of easy read introductions, a video introduction, templates, databases and maps.
