Authentic Community Engagement—The 5 Aces

  • Framework for building mutually beneficial relationships among people and groups. This framework addresses how to effectively build relationships across difference. Authentic Community Engagement is a powerful development tool for organizations to gain a deep understanding of their history and role in communities, from their perspective and from the perspective of the communities they serve. Authentic Community Engagement is being adopted by arts organizations across the country as a cutting edge approach to audience development.  I've created the 5 Aces framework as a way to inform the process.
