Abstract and Keywords

This chapter argues that community-oriented work should be approached both as a contributor to, and consumer of, policy-thinking and analysis, and would benefit from becoming more broadly conceptualized as an agent within cultural policies, its study, and practice. It highlights the impact of integrative approaches whereby working synergistically within various stakeholders and areas of action we expand our chances to partner with purpose. The chapter suggests that in order to achieve greater engagement with policy, individuals and organizations must focus on how to develop a framing disposition—that is, the wherewithal (individual or organizational) to generate opportunities and put innovative projects to practice.

Keywords: policy, community-oriented work, equity, framing disposition, community music, activism, cultural policy
