Creative Community - the Art of Cultural Development
Author: Don Adams, Arlene Goldbard
Description: The report traces the history, theoretical underpinnings, values, and methods of community cultural development practice, emphasizing its effectiveness as a response to the social and economic forces that weaken cultural ties, and offer is recommendations to strengthen and support the field.
The Creativity & Culture theme at The Rockefeller Foundation has endeavored to maintain and build on the Foundation's tradition in the arts and humanities of an "assertive humanism," responsive to contemporary social conditions. As globalization accelerates, community cultural development practice is more and more widely recognized as a powerful means of awakening and mobilizing alternatives to imposed cultural values. It is our hope that this report will help to further develop both the theory and practice of community cultural development.
