Target Practice? Using the Arts for Social Inclusion
Lynch, Heather; Allan, Julie
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v8 n12 p1-21 Oct 2007
Use of creative processes as a tool for social inclusion has gathered momentum in recent years. This article reports the views of education professionals based in Scotland on the use and effects of targeting. While this strategy aims to improve access to those communities considered marginal, it is apparent that some of the effects are detrimental to the development of an equitable approach. Using the framework of social capital we gain insight into strategies which enable difference to become positive and where the top down mechanism of targeting is replaced by a dialogical exchange.
