Art and Upheaval: Artists on the World's Frontlines

William Cleveland, director of the Center for the Study of Art & Community, recently had his book, Art and Upheaval: Artists on the World's Frontlines, published by New Village Press. Cleveland spent eight years traveling the globe gathering stories about artists working in communities facing political, social and environmental upheaval. He found that when the forces of creativity and destruction meet surprising things happen. Art and Upheaval presents a striking picture of artists in the proverbial trenches struggling for freedom & peace in six global hot spots. Click here to read more.

Dear Colleagues:

I just wanted to let you know that 6 of the 10 profiles in this book describe the work describe theater artists making responding to such issues as land rights, genocide, and war. I would be very interested to hear any reactions to Art and Upheaval to the book as well as your experiences working in communities facing upheaval.

Thanks,

Bill Cleveland
