Free Online Notebook Explores ‘Ethics and Participatory Art’
What has the field of participatory arts for social change learned about ethics in its decades of growth? We have, in fact, developed best practices—do you know them? There is a new, free, digital notebook, written by two leaders in the field and edited by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, called “Art and Community Notebooks.” It follows a January workshop hosted by the Foundation’s PARTIS program, which included nearly 100 participants from both sides of the Atlantic discussing “Ethics and Participatory Art.” Available in both Portuguese and English, the notebook is written by colleagues with decades of experience: cultural activist and visual artist Arlene Goldbard, who lives in the U.S., and writer, researcher, and community artist François Matarasso. Download the notebook via the Gulbenkian Foundation.
