CLACIA ‘Creatively linking a Community through Its Arts' was developed as a CCD model and is being trialled in regional NSW, Hastings Region in conjunction with the Hastings Arts Health Network 2002. It is based on the construct and challenge that ‘A Healthy Community is a Creative One'.
CLACIA is based on a number of CCD beliefs:-
• Any group of people who become a structured entity can and do form a community and with it a cultural identity.
• Any one group of people have special needs and all can become contributors into the community cultural context when appropriately supported.
• Cross generational interaction and collaborative protocols are indicators of a functioning community.
• Arts are a part of the cultural expression which have moved beyond the private into the public arena through time and place and have used form to translate those changes.
We are supporting our artists with a document called ‘Common Ground ‘,based on the Core principles from Use or Ornament' Comedia UK. It is concerned with understood expectations, shared objectives and joint evaluations with negotiated pay scales, for the agency and artist prior to contracts being signed.
CLACIA aims to cross reference the community through its creativity, supported by artists in the community. We are looking at the sustainability of relationships. Once the protocols between community groups are established, they can be revisited at any time.
