Abstract or Description

This Chapter is a case study of three community projects that formed part of my research project: The Gratitude Enquiry. It draws from practice in order to identify the reciprocal movement of give and take that exists between participants, and in the whole community of a participatory, collaborative arts project. It covers three projects: I live in it, an intergenerational dance project, Fanmail, a visual art project with adults recovering form mental ill health, and Bread, an intergenerational baking and storytelling project.
