The term Community Art has been used broadly to describe arts programs where artists facilitate projects within a community setting. Examples include after-school programs for youth, community centers that offer inter-generational programming, site-specific mural projects, and public installations or performances. The program includes an internship that leads students to consider local and global applications of Community Art principles.
The community artist is one who enters into the lives of others to activate creativity, story-telling, discipleship and worship. Community Art is a contemporary art form that draws on theories from other disciplines, including auto-ethnography, critical pedagogy, postcolonial narrative and cultural studies.
