The Arts and Community

Fall 2018

Taught By: Courtney J. Boddie and Diane Ragsdale

Section: A

CRN: 5474

Credits: 2

This course focuses on the ways in which arts organizations and artists build and support community. The course will review the history of arts in community settings, shifting demographics and their impact on arts, artists and audiences; the integration of culture into arts policy and programs; how the arts develop community identity; the connection between arts and economic development; and community cultural planning. Students will investigate the essential role that community-based art making, presenting, and partnerships plays in the life of artists and arts organizations, with an emphasis on programming, presenting, and marketing into non-traditional and alternative venues (including K-12 school, libraries, prisons, and social justice oriented work, as well as in creative placemaking). The course will also provide practical measures that have emerged in the field of arts and community within the context of methods of fundraising, advocacy, outreach, collaborations, and presentations.
