Breaking down thestudiow a l l s compiles the lessons learned from artists across the globe about how to change their communities through art and creativity.

As we reach the mid-way point of the project, this seems to be an opportune time to summarize the findings from the first half of the year (January 2 – July 2, 2013) and analyze its successes and pitfalls.

The title of this summary – “Breaking down the studio walls” – refers to the active role that artists around the globe are taking in their communities.  When governments fail to educate children, artists fill in the gaps; when a minority group is being excluded, artists give them a voice; when an economy stagnates, artists find creative methods for employing themselves and their network.  This assertion also serves as a reminder that we are all called to see beyond ourselves, beyond our own studio, and engage with the community around us. 

Breaking down the studio walls compiles a wide range of resources for you to begin using your art to challenge and revitalize your community:

  • Interviews with creative leaders around the world
  • Case studies from specific artist communities
  • Visual notations logged in my sketchbooks
  • Step-by-step tactics to build social responsibility through art in your own community
  • Implications of the arts in our rapidly globalizing world
