Socially Engaged Creative Practice: Contemporary Case Studies

Kate Aughterson, Jess Moriarty

Research output: Book/ReportBook - editedpeer-review


Aughterson and Moriarty argue that fluid concepts of communities in conjunction with the practice of socially engaged practice in arts and theatre both trace an ideological heritage back to the emergence of community art and performance in the 60s, and retain a vibrant relevance in different artistic fields today. The practitioners, theatre makers, artists, writers and academics who contribute to this collection share a sense in which their social engaged practice works with a local community through art to create change.
