The School of Performing Arts presents “Art and Community,” a series of talks by nationally recognized artists and thought leaders on the power and practice of art and art-making as an essential element of socially healthy communities. The talks will lead to open dialogue on the practical gains of art as a core element for building strong communities. The talks are free and open to the public.
William Cleveland, a pioneer in the community arts movement and one of its most poetic documenters. His books Art in Other Places: Artists at Work in America’s Community and Social Institutions, Making Exact Change, and Art and Upheaval: Artists on the World’s Frontlines are considered seminal works in the field of arts-based community development. Activist, teacher, lecturer, and musician, he also directs the Center for the Study of Art & Community.
