Case Studies from Animating Democracy
Art, Dialogue, Action, Activism examines the role of dialogue in the work of cultural organizations oriented toward civic action and activism. Four very different efforts provide insights into dialogue integrated within cultural activity, dialogue as a means to explore different perspectives within a commonly held goal or position, and dialogue as a necessary precursor to decision making or action. Projects include: Common Threads Theater Project (Arts Council of Greater Lima); Arte es Vida (The Esperanza Peace and Justice Center); Agents and Assets (Los Angeles Poverty Department); and Understanding Neighbors (Out North Contemporary Art House).
