Citizens For Justice

Citizens For Justice | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Jules Rochielle's insight:

Citizens for Justice is a non-profit making organization advocating for environmental and social justice which seeks to respond to a number of emergent and recurring challenges threatening communities in Malawi. These areas emanate firstly from the drive to industrialize Malawi through the extractive industry which has posed environmental challenges, labor issues, corporate abuse and marginalization of vulnerable groups.

ABOUT |

ABOUT | | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it

As a digital platform, Art of the Rural elevates the rural arts field by facilitating rural-urban dialogue and cross-sector exchange. On the ground, we cultivate an organic manifestation of the digital mapping process by engaging the field in conversation, encouraging partnerships, while also activating participation in rural cultural policy and programming.

MISSION

Art of the Rural is a collaborative organization with a mission to help build the field of the rural arts, create new narratives on rural culture and community, and contribute to the emerging rural arts and culture movement.

We work online and on the ground through interdisciplinary and cross-sector partnerships to advocate for engaged conversation and policy that transcends imposed boundaries and articulates the shared reality of rural and urban America.

***

Art of the Rural considers the aesthetic, cultural, and historical foundations within the field as a necessary prologue to the current conversation. We believe rural America stands at a unique intersection between the traditional and contemporary, and we are committed to documenting this complicated inheritance.

A two-fold mission guides Art of the Rural. While our digital projects offer multiple outlets and platforms for engaging with the dynamics of rural arts and culture, we are also committed to connecting those resources to the lives and the experiences of a range of communities. We believe digital media can collapse the geographical distance that has long separated rural people from themselves and their urban partners, but that such technology must work to bridge human relationships through events, programs, publications, and the creation of collaborative communities.

Jules Rochielle's insight:

I love this project

Artification | Arlene Goldbard

This exchange between Rick Lowe, the founder and director of Project Row Houses in Houston and brand-new appointee to the National Council on the Arts (see Third Ward TX, my friend Andrew Garrison’s wonderful 2007 film on this work if you can) and Nato Thompson, Chief Curator of Creative Time, was part of the Creative Time Summit, a much-livestreamed late October 2013 New York conference on “Art, Place & Dislocation in The 21st Century City.” Before and since, I’ve had a bunch of conversations with fellow artists about “social practice.” I consider them part of a larger decentralized conversation now taking place about the naming, values, social position, and impact of socially engaged art-making. The question that’s being called is cooptation: is yet another insurgent, critical movement being watered-down into something palatable to the establishment artworld—something that may reify existing power relations rather than undermining them?
