Speaking of Communities

Interesting piece on Community Arts Network: The Choices We Have and Our Privilege To Move On.

The ability to choose to enter a community, to make art and to leave once a project or session is complete or things get “too hard” is a privilege of the outsider community artist. When working in a community that is different from our own, it is essential to reflect, address and confront our own privilege in order to become conscious and committed to the work and to the community.
