Well known writer, speaker and cultural activist, Arlene Goldbard will be in Philadelphia on Monday, November 4th to present her "Ethics of Community Arts Practice" workshop at the Leeway Foundation.
Artists working in communities encounter the unique ethical challenges of participatory arts practice. How to balance the commitment to a funder or sponsoring organization with commitments to community participants? Is the community artist’s role to channel others’ creativity without intruding, or should the artist’s own aesthetics, values, and priorities be part of the mix? How do you handle censorship, conflict, disruption? Led by Arlene Goldbard, this hands-on workshop will help participants identify their own values and ethical commitments, equipping themselves to anticipate and head off conflicts, and find mutual, respectful solutions when they do arise.
This workshop is sponsored by The Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation with support from the Leeway Foundation and the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance.
