7 SIAP Cultural Benchmarking Project, Neighborhood Survey, Summary Presentation, Five Modes of Arts Participation, Based on Level of Creative Control Inventive Arts Participation engages the mind, body and spirit in an act of artistic creation that is unique and idiosyncratic, regardless of skill level. Interpretive Arts Participation is a creative act of self-expression that brings alive and adds value to pre-existing works of art, either individually or collaboratively. Curatorial Arts Participation is the creative act of purposefully selecting, organizing and collecting art to the satisfaction of ones own artistic sensibility. Observational Arts Participation encompasses arts experiences that you select or consent to, motivated by some expectation of value. Ambient Arts Participation involves experiencing art, consciously or unconsciously, that you did not select. NONE AMOUNT OF CREATIVE CONTROL NONE TOTAL AMOUNT OF CREATIVE CONTROL NONE
