The theory, history & practice of community art
A Restless Art was published in January 2019. Many things have changed since then—for the world, for community art, and for me. It’s time for this site to change too. Over the years, I’ve used several others for different projects, notably Regular Marvels and Parliament of Dreams. They will go dormant for a while and then be closed. Anything worth keeping will migrate here in the coming months, and the site itself will be refreshed, but while all that happens, there will be plenty of gaps, mistakes and dead ends, so please be patient. There are more than 300 posts and 70 pages here so, if you know what you are interested in, you might find it most easily by using the search tool on the right.
The resources published here during the writing of the book can now be found under the menu item called ‘A Restless Art’, but that too will be thinned in due course: go there to order or download the book. This site will continue to evolve, with my work and thinking, though there will be fewer posts for a while. If you’d like to be notified by email when new pieces are added, you can subscribe below.
