In this workshop, participants are asked to imagine what their community might look and feel like if the arts were fully integrated into the fabric of their community – music, theater, dance, design, art, and poetry! Attendees are given art and writing supplies to record their vision in words and/or images. Some of the questions they might be asked to consider include: How could the arts be used to address social issues – of homelessness, education, injustice, health care, community engagement and economic revitalization? What kind of streetscape would be in their neighborhood? This workshop activates the collective imagination, allows artistic expressions and documents the community’s vision of a social renaissance with the arts as the nucleus of community development.
