Abstract
Debates on arts' social role have been prominent in cultural policy and research for the past decades. Claims for what the arts "do" to people and the ways in which they can bring about both individual and societal transformation are plentiful, not seldom in association with a wider debate about the rationales for public support of the arts. Consequently, the reflection on participation in the arts, and its implications for cultural policies, has gained in relevance. In Flanders, the recognition of participatory arts practices within the framework of the Arts Decree is illustrative in that vein. In this article, we argue, however, that the ongoing debate fails to be explicit about the underlying agendas to which this social role intentionally and/or unintentionally accommodates. We aim to enrich this debate by reporting on the findings of semi-structured interviews with art intermediaries working within different art organisations in Flanders and Brussels.
