Definition of Quality and Excellent Art

Transported is committed to providing quality arts activities and experiences in Boston Borough and South Holland, and the definition of what “quality and excellent art ” is is something that Transported is continuously exploring as part of our Quality and Innovation Programme.

At a recent presentation to the Transported Management Group, James Urquhart of Arts Council England approached it from this angle which we thought summed it up rather well:

The bravest, most original, most innovative, most perfectly realised work of which people are capable – whether in the creation of art, its performance, its communication or its impact on audiences – to be measured in its effect on both those who make it and those who experience it.  It is the opposite of the safe, routine and imitative.
