The Business of Dreams - Participatory Arts Case Studies from the East Midlands

Since the beginning of 2010 EMPAF has been collating 'Stories' of the participatory arts in the East Midlands region. Under the title of "The Business of Dreams - Where Once There Were Dragons, Now There Are Day Jobs" these stories, together with a range of case studies due for publication in May 2012, form the start of what we hope will be an interesting, wide ranging and useful collection of articles.
