The Participation programme reflects Gasworks' overarching aim to provide a space for creative exchange, stimulation and dialogue between artists and local audiences. Projects provide a variety of access points to Gasworks' different programmes through workshops, events and long term collaborations with local organisations. The main focus of this activity is through Even Better Together which has been running since 2008.
Gasworks is also developing Talk is Cheap; a research strand of the programme encompassing projects, commissions, residencies and specially convened conversations. It is a space within the programme for critical reflection and practice-based research into Gasworks’ participatory programming.
