What is Art for Social Change?

Judith Marcuse Projects (JMP) and Simon Fraser University have partnered to establish the International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC), the first of its kind in North America. ICASC is a global centre for networking, training, professional development, research and community outreach in the burgeoning field of art for social change. ICASC is also a hub where people working for progressive change in fields such as health, social justice and human rights, environmental education and community economic empowerment, can learn about the many ways that art for social change practices can be used as highly-effective tools in their work.

Indeed, the arts, especially participatory, community-engaged approaches, are increasingly recognized as core elements of all kinds of change agendas.
