Description:

This full-color celebration of citizen artists revitalizing their communities profiles 10 exemplary grass-roots arts projects. Stories range from children building a mud facade on their Oregon school to an annual blessing procession and festival in north Philadelphia that brings to life dozens of the most derelict blocks in urban America. This collection of human-interest stories and resources about grass-roots community building offers a rare and appealing counterbalance to the clinical policy reports common to the field. Profiles are written in language that inspires and informs both community development professionals and citizen activists. Lead editor Lynne Elizabeth is director of New Village Press and former editor of New Village Journal and Earthword Journal.
