Description: Community, Culture and Globalization is a new publication commissioned by The Rockefeller Foundation and edited by Don Adams and Arlene Goldbard. A companion volume to 2001's Creative Community: The Art of Cultural Development by Adams and Goldbard (also available from this site), this anthology features essays on community cultural development theory and practice from authors based in fifteen different nations, representing a wide range of disciplines, backgrounds and outlooks, yet united in using their creative talents to educate, mobilize and empower their communities to withstand the homogenizing forces of globalization.

The Creativity & Culture theme at The Rockefeller Foundation seeks to nurture creativity in its diverse cultural and aesthetic forms and to promote the arts and humanities, with their qualities of imagination, beauty and social critique, as indispensable to the well-being of people everywhere, the poor and excluded as well as the affluent.

About the editors: Since 1978, Adams and Goldbard have consulted with a wide variety of public and private agencies, most of them involved in cultural policy, artistic production and distribution, and cultural development planning and evaluation. The authors are happy to receive your responses to this publication directly. You may contact them by e-mailing mailto:icd@wwcd.org or by writing them at: Adams & Goldbard, PO Box 30061, Seattle, WA 98103-2061.

In conjunction with the release of Community, Culture and Globalization, the Australian community cultural development group Feral Arts is partnering with editors Don Adams and Arlene Goldbard in hosting a new online project -- Globosaurus.net. Globosaurus will bring together people from different disciplines to support discussion and collaboration and share expertise and information. In its first six months, Globosaurus will focus on discussion generated by the release of Community, Culture and Globalization, with guest facilitator Don Adams.
