The Animating Democracy blog salon on ARTSblog.org sought answers to a very big question: what will it take to move and sustain arts and culture in community development, civic engagement and social change? The 21st century is all about intersections, networks and hybridity. Our goal should be to ingrain arts in community development through cross-cutting projects that seek to anchor people to place. Carol Atlas nailed it by highlighting Arts & Democracy’s new book: Bridge Conversations, People Who Live and Work in Multiple Worlds.
