Topic Description / Additional Information

This course is a Social Work listing for the course offered through the Residential College - RCHUMS 334-002.

Community-based art, or art "of, by, and for the people" has emerged in the past twenty years as a genre that has rocked the fields of both art and activism by calling into question traditional notions of "community," "participation," "spectatorship," and "leadership." Students enrolled in this class will have the unique opportunity to experience community-based art in action through hands-on work with one exemplary project in the Detroit metro area. As a supplement to these internships, students will meet once a week to explore how this genre brings about personal, community, and societal transformation through readings, discussion, self-reflection and creative response.
