The Art of Community

Publication Year: 

The Art of Community illustrates how weaving art and culture into program initiatives can lay the foundation for newcomers and the receiving society to find common ground and work together to build vibrant communities in which everyone has a stake. It offers strategies, lessons, and insights to inform foundation giving at the intersection of arts and community services.

Including art as part of the process of immigrant integration is discussed on the Americans for the Arts audio blog by Amy Skillman, the Institute for Cultural Partnership's vice president and director of arts and heritage program, and Laura Marcus, independent consultant and folklorist.
