Domain Creative Participation
Creative participation refers to arts or cultural activity that is regular, productive, deliberate and tangible, including activity that takes place individually or collectively, and either inside or outside the home. Such activity can include playing an instrument, writing poetry, or taking part in dance classes, but does not include more 'passive' forms, such as, listening to music or reading books. It is often through creative participation that people articulate and maintain cultural heritage. It is also through creative participation that people may develop a desire to become artists, and participate in wider forms of cultural change and innovation.
