COMMUNITY - 2019THE TERM COMMUNITY CAN BE ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACTIVITIES OR INTERVENTIONS OF SPECIALISED CHARITIES, REGENERATION PROGRAMMES, OR CULTURAL PROJECTS. WHILST NOT UNDERMINING THE IMPORTANT VALUE OF THESE WHEN THEY ARE EFFECTIVE, SUCH ACTIVITIES AT TIMES CARRY CONNOTATIONS OF ‘OUTSIDE’ EXPERTS WHO ENTER A SITUATION TO RESPOND TO A SPECIFIC, OFTEN PROBLEMATIC, ISSUE AMONG A DEFINED GROUP OF PEOPLE. BUT COMMUNITY CAN ALSO MEAN ANY COLLECTIVE OF PEOPLE THAT TOGETHER SHARE A JOINED UNDERSTANDING, THAT CREATE A NETWORK OF SUPPORT OR HAVE A UNITED OUTLOOK ON LIFE – AND IN THIS CONTEXT, THE IDEA OF COMMUNITY IS INCLUSIVE AND EXPANSIVE. COMMUNITIES COME IN ALL FORMS AND HAVE MANY DIFFERENT MEANINGS, AS THIS PROJECT SHOWS.
