Caravan Next. Feed the Future – Art Moving Cities is the title of the European Social Community Theatre project taking place in 11 different European countries from December 2015 to February 2018. In this period, more than 30 Social Community Theatre events related to Audience Engagement and Audience Development were carried out by the 13 project partners from 11 different European countries. The Social Community Theatre events took place in 40 different cities and involved more than 500 local partners. This book presents the methodology of Social Community Theatre, an evaluation and analysis based on the results of the experimental qualitative-quantitative evaluation approach to local communities and professional artists. Further contributions develop a theoretical reflection on the relationship between art and social transformation, and highlight the legacy of the Caravan Next project in terms of transferability to multicultural and cultural heritage contexts.
