STATE of the ART: A Report on Art for Social Change (ASC) in Canada


As our five-year ASC! Research Project on art for social change (ASC) in Canada passes the halfway mark, we share an interim report with you. State of the Art is a snapshot of some of our findings written in non-academic language and created to provide an overview of some of our work, an addition to the many articles, papers and videos that continue to be created and published about specific aspects of the study. Topics in this document include scans of current activities in the art for social change field, overviews of funding patterns, approaches to evaluation and research, and initial findings about partnerships.

We thank our partners at ArtBridges who contributed valuable statistical and other information to this report.
