Yo u r Gu i de to Art + Community

Issue 1 Spring 2017


Art Kit is a publication that highlights innovative

and community-engaged artists, organizations, and projects to empower readers. The magazine provides practical tools, work spaces, and inspirational examples to help individuals enrich their own community arts practice.

We believe that art is for everyone and the arts

build community. We aim to demystify art practices, gather knowledge from community leaders, and provide a creative springboard for all artists and would-be artists. Art Kit will seek out artists, organizations, collectives, and administrators who embody the following principles as role models for our creative toolkit.

Principles Art in Community • Art Kit believes the arts should build processes that reflect and include the diversity of their audience through an intersectional lens. Art as Community • Art Kit views art as a connector which brings people together across boundaries and catalyzes movements that defy systems of oppression. Art for Community • Art Kit declares art can provide space for transformative experiences that bring healing, joy, fun, and refuge. Art with Community • Art Kit approaches learning and teaching with humility, and understands building sustainable movements requires deep relationships that increase agency for all.
