Questions of Community
Stronger artist alliances, skepticism about institutions, and awareness of new audiences have all contributed to a reevaluation of what works and what doesn't for artists striving towards social change. In this timely anthology, over twenty writers and artists share their experiences in a range of Canadian contexts. From First Nations coalitions to artist mentoring programs, important art projects are analyzed. Several theorists offer additional insights into the broader issues shaping activist art practices. Offering years of collective experience, this book is essential reading for understanding arts activism in Canada.
