Case Studies from Animating Democracy
Cultural Perspectives in Civic Dialogue shares the efforts of cultural organizers who are skilled in working deeply within and across cultures to understand important cultural considerations in arts-based civic dialogue work. Their endeavors illuminate how cultural norms mediate public space and participation, as well as how the choices regarding art forms and dialogue approaches can support or discourage civic participation, of various cultural groups. Projects include: African in Maine (Center for Cultural Exchange); Arte es Vida (The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center); and the King Kamehameha Statue Conservation Project (Hawai'i Alliance for Arts Education).
