Social Engagement: the ability to work constructively within and between social groups to create more resilient and sustainable communities. Juliet Millican, Community University Partnership Programme, University of Brighton 

 

Community Art is any art form which focuses on involving community members, who contribute a variety of talents, to design and create a public art piece. These projects are done together with a professional artist who passes on skills to the participants through the art-making process. The importance of the project is placed on the process of art making because of its ability to build relationships and involve all members of a neighbourhood helping to establish collective identity. The artwork, once complete, is exhibited or performed for the community.  – My HRM.ca
