This chapter builds on ideas and findings from research conducted to consider the distinctive elements of grassroots arts activities in communities. It highlights the current critical framing of grassroots arts activities and identifies the range of claims made around the impacts of informal arts participation, particularly concerning individual and social well-being, social cohesion and place-making. The authors suggest future directions for research in the field to develop a broader understanding of the experiences and practices of grassroots activities and their role in communities.

Keywords:   community, arts, amateur, grassroots, voluntary, well being, social cohesion
