This week saw the launching of the new Arts & Democracy website. This group is quickly becoming my main source for the word on cultural organizing. I’m also excited to be hosting Arts & Democracy director Caron Atlas as a speaker at the upcoming Community Organizing and School Reform conference I’m working on at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
The new site keeps some of the features of the old site, but has a couple new pieces. In particular, they’ve got a page on the Art of Policy Change, which looks at efforts using art and cultural organizing to, you guessed it, shift policy. Can’t wait to go through them, I’m always interested in new examples of cultural organizing in action. (I think i see a picture of a comic book on there…)
