Community arts is a field promoting artistic practices with groups and communities to express diverse local identities and to raise awareness about social, political and environmental issues. Ranging from participatory mural production to popular theatre, activist video to group singing, from community dance to web-based activist art, we see community arts as a field that democratizes art, emphasizing the collaborative process as much as the product of art-making. Founded in 2005, the Community Arts Practice program at York University in Toronto brings together undergraduate and graduate students, community organizations and faculty members in the Greater Toronto Area and across national and international networks for teaching and learning, community-engaged arts-based interdisciplinary research,  and collaborative creation and dissemination. Join us!
