Editors: Tom Anderson, David Gussak, Kara Kelley Hallmark, and Allison Paul
A resource and reference book for education activists at all levels, across disciplines, who are ready to respond to 21st-century challenges. This collection shows how art educators play a key role in shaping curricula to connect students with effective advocacy for social justice issues.
“The text provides a benchmark in professional efforts toward social justice in a wide array of art education contexts, including community education, K-12 art education, higher education and teacher preparation, and international/multicultural perspectives. Each topic is addressed in chapters… by well-known socially-conscious art educators, intertwined with chapters by newer voices in the field.
Readers… will be elevated by the moral courage of the authors who chose to invest their time in changing the world through teaching art for social justice and sharing their stories.”
