Designed to give an introduction to running and designing an artwork project and artwork that involves the community. It is especially suitable for artists that want to get involved in community artworks or individuals that would like to create their own community project. No previous skills or experience is needed and it is aimed to give practical information and insight into community consultation, planning, design, construction and costing.

Richard Newport has been a professional community arts worker for the past nine years and has designed over 30 community art projects including the Nambour Adventure Playground, which received the Maroochy Shire's 'Overall Golden Award' in 2002 for planning and building.
