It seems important to reiterate a point made before: I am an artist. I am not an engagement officer. I was trained as an artist, not as a social worker. I have the skills of an artist, not of a community-liaison officer. This call for clarity might seem semantic quibbling – and there certainly are many artists who might intentionally embody overlaps with other fields, myself included – but there are both moral and practical issues when blurring the edges of these roles when working within the realm of participatory art.
