Winter Intensive: Artists Working in Communities
February 10 @ 4:00 pm–5:30 pmFree – $15
Are you an artist that already works with the community? Are you an artist that wants to extend their practice to working with the community? Springboard for the Arts developed A Handbook for Artists Working in Community, which is an invaluable resource for all artists seeking to engage communities in their practice. The book is a compilation of insights, practices, and tools from Springboard’s collective experiences as artists, as an organization working with hundreds of artists in communities, and from artist practitioners. Jun-Li Wang, Associate Director of Programs at Springboard for the Arts, will discuss this handbook as a practical manual for artists who would like to begin or deepen their work with the community.
