The Idea Box

Welcome to the Idea Box! Taking the first steps towards undertaking a community engagement project can be intimidating; the Idea Box is intended to provide examples, inspiration, and contacts to support you as you explore the potential for engagement projects in your community. Feel free to browse through projects, or to sort specifically by discipline, timeframe, budget, or stage of completion.


If you would like to speak to the ArtsEngage team, or to any of the organizers featured here, get in touch with us.


If you are working on or have completed a community engagement project, we invite you to share your story. By sharing our ideas, successes, and failures, at all stages of the process, we can support and learn from each other. Share your story here.
