Definitions and criteria setup
There are numerous studies, articles and researches aiming to give answers to these questions. Just googling gives you an overwhelming amount. The purpose of this study is not to repeat this excercise , nor think we cando it better. We are more interested in digging
deeper into the questions that will result in concrete tools for artists. How to convey their core competencies in new settings, as well as the traditional sector, and to gain a holistic understanding of the nature of art-based competencies and what they mean in practice.
In order to get deeper, we hence have to accept certain generalizations. We have discussed and mirrored these generalizations with a number of artists, mediators and experts in order to assure they are in line with the general understanding of definitions in this study.
