Artists Working in Community Handbook

The artists at Springboard for the Arts have compiled this guide for integrating artistic practice and life into the communities around us, and for addressing issues that matter to our communities into our art. "Whatever form your creativity takes, whatever communities you find yourself working with and in, there are practices that can make your work more successful and satisfying – for you and the people you work with. This handbook is a compilation of insights, practices, and tools from our collective experiences as artists, as an organization working with hundreds of artists in communities, and from a few of the artist practitioners whom we admire. This handbook is a practical manual for individual artists who would like to begin or deepen this kind of artistic practice – work in and work with community."
