Planning for Public Participation and Community Engagement in Contemporary Feminist Art Programs
MetadataShow full item record
The arts administration field severely lacks the contribution of feminist critique as well as its own disciplinary research specific to feminist art. This project seeks to help address that gap through descriptive research by 1) describing the public participation and community engagement activities of two active, US-based contemporary feminist art programs; 2) reading these programs’ public participation and community engagement strategies vis à vis new research on emergent trends in arts participation; and 3) assessing potential impact of that research on current or future programs that seek to advance art and feminism. Research methods include a literature review in feminist art theory, history of US feminist art programs, and recent research in arts participation and engagement, as well as two case analyses of current feminist art programs, employing both interviews and document analysis.
