Summer Workshop: Exploring Arts for Social Change – A Five-Day Intensive Workshop

The International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC) and Judith Marcuse Projects, in partnership with The Dance Centre, announce

Exploring Arts for Social Change – A Five-Day Intensive Workshop

One of the most effective ways we have to nurture positive change in the world is to create dialogue and problem-solve through a creative lens; one that encourages pragmatic innovation through the use of our imaginations.

Here is an opportunity to experience some of the many ways arts-for-social-change approaches (including games and other forms of play, dialogue techniques, and art-making in a variety of disciplines) can stimulate and inform creative strategies – as well as the creation of art – in our lives. No experience necessary! Participants will learn about and practice diverse approaches and skills that are used in Canada and around the world to stimulate creative thinking and innovation, nurture insight, solve problems and create new ideas for engagement, collaboration and action.

This intensive will be taught by Judith Marcuse with guests from the field; it will include dialogues, reading, video showings and small-scale projects.

Judith Marcuse, a senior artist/practitioner and teacher, is the founder of ICASC ( For over 30 years, her local and international work in community and academic settings has aimed to create a more just and sustainable world through participation in the arts.
