Session 226: Arts in Place by Cara Courage
For this session, Vera Mühlebach selected excerpts from the book Arts in Place: The Arts, the Urban and Social Practice by Cara Courage (Routledge, 2017).
“This interdisciplinary book explores the role of art in placemaking in urban environments, analysing how artists and communities use arts to improve their quality of life. It explores the concept of social practice placemaking, where artists and community members are seen as equal experts in the process. Drawing on examples of local level projects from the USA and Europe, the book explores the impact of these projects on the people involved, on their relationship to the place around them, and on city policy and planning practice.” -Book cover
