Image for Study Explores Innovations in Art and Social Justice

Jul 14, 2015

A new report from EmcArts focuses on three organizations – Alternate ROOTS (Charleston, SC), Jane Addams Hull-House Museum (Chicago, IL), and The Theater Offensive (Boston, MA) – with the aim of highlighting processes of adaptive change at the intersection of art and social justice. Given the relationship between each of these organizations and broader movements for social equity, the report looks at how innovating within a lens of social justice requires unique tactics, assumptions, and goals.

According to EmcArts, “in these [case studies] you’ll find many examples of strategies that create increased alignment between organizational policies and practices, and social justice values like equity, self-determination, inclusion, and belonging. You’ll also discover ways that these organizations that employ artistic practice and social justice mandates engage and innovate differently with their communities and stakeholders.”
