Community arts worker: Job description Community arts workers collaborate with a wide variety of local groups, encouraging the use of artistic activities to support their development and improve their quality of life. Generally, they work in areas where there are social, cultural or environmental issues to be addressed. They use a whole range of art forms to engage with these different community groups, including visual arts, theatre, dance, music, craft, creative writing, carnival arts and film. Community arts worker is more of an umbrella term as job titles tend to relate quite closely to the role or type of work, for example arts development officer, youth engagement officer, youth arts practitioner, and community projects assistant. Creative practitioners are usually freelance creative professionals.

Or a teacher whose students got dumber as the school year progressed? What it takes to do new things at work, overnight By Polly LaBarre, contributor (TheMIX) -- What leader today doesn't want more innovation?

The leaders who generate more creative energy and innovation are always wrestling with the question: How do we design in more slack? Or, how do we create an environment and support work that enlists people to invent their company's future?
