Content in Context: Community Building through Arts Education
Shimshon-Santo, Amy R.
Journal for Learning through the Arts, v3 n1 Article 5 2007
This article shares critical reflections on cultivating community partnerships through arts education and provides an analytical framework for community building. It is argued that increasing access to arts education requires attention be paid not only to content issues in arts education, but, also, to holistic approaches that address the contexts of diverse learning communities. Findings are based on multi-year qualitative analysis with participants in urban secondary schools and communities in Los Angeles County.
