Artists nowadays take into consideration the demands and interests of audiences from intercultural society all over the world in the creative processes of art. The strict and conventional roles of the artist and audience have begun to change and get closer. Many artists need to step into the society that become more cosmopolitan and more based on a variety of cultures. Participatory projects gain importance because this is where professionals meet amateurs, where the artists meet the public and in the end where people meet people.
