Common Ground joined with Create to form a jointly managed mentoring research project. The documentation, edited and written by Sarah Searson. Through a printed booklet, DVD and supporting blog, the programme outlines principles of approach rather than a prescriptive ‘how to’. They are intended to be used together as a learning resource tool to inform artists and different organisations how to support artists professionally, particularly those working in context.

The mentoring research, supported by an advisory group, responded to the unique conditions of artists working within a community context and drew upon expertise of individuals working in the field. A number of supporting events were programmed over the term of the project such as panel discussions, presentations and workshops. Public action research forums were hosted in Dublin, Galway and Limerick. Common Ground and Create co-partnered on the framework and delivery of the project.
