A new wave of community arts projects has opened up exciting areas
of cross-cultural creativity in recent years. These collaborations
of local people, arts facilitators, anthropologists and supporting
organisations represent a flourishing new form of arts-based
collaborative anthropology that aims to document the stories and
cultures of local people using creative art forms. Often focusing
on social and cultural agendas, from education and health promotion
to advocacy and cultural heritage preservation, participants bring
together methods historically linked to anthropology with those
from the arts and community development. Side by Side? - The
Challenge of Co-creativity investigates these creative projects as
sites of significant cultural creation and potential social change.
Through the exploration of a range of diverse collaborations, the
common threads and historical contexts in this domain of cultural
creativity are examined. The role that creative arts collaborations
can have in disrupting existing hierarchies of social power and
knowledge creation is analysed, as are the potential futures,
historical and cultural implications of these co-creative
practices. Drawing on the experiences and reflections of over 30
facilitators from more than 7 countries, and written by an
experienced collaborative arts practitioner and researcher, this
exciting forthcoming book from Routledge will play a defining role
in the emerging critical discourse on collaborative art and
collaborative anthropology. It will make essential reading for
anthropologists, arts facilitators and others who aim to
collaborate cross-culturally, as well as students of Art,
Anthropology, and related subjects.
