Promoting the expansion of art in society and education, this book highlights the significance of the arts as an instrument of social justice, inclusion, equity, and protection of the environment. Including twenty-seven diverse case studies of socially-engaged art practice with groups like the Black Lives Matter movement, the LGBTQ community, and Rikers Island, this book guides art educators toward innovative, transdisciplinary, and diverse methodologies. A valuable resource on creating spaces for change, it addresses the relationships between artists and educators, museums and communities.
