CTR 148, Fall 2011, “Artists and Communities” is now available online
Edited by Kim Renders, Julie Salverson, and Jenn Stephenson
In this issue, contributors dig into the fertile ground of the artist and community theatrical collaboration. Our choice to focus on artists reflects a shift in how this work is placed within arts and culture funding bodies, neighbourhoods and organizations, and among artists. This field has now attracted the ardour of the mainstream.
This development is accompanied by the delights and dangers all love affairs entail. Addressing the perspectives of outsiders, insiders, educators, creators, and audience members, the contributors to this issue grapple with the changing definitions of community arts. The collection offers a mix that reflects the integration of theory and practice, the virtual and the embodied, celebration and mourning, rage and reflection.
