The Art, Education, and Community Practice Program at NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development

34 Stuyvesant Street New York, NY 10003

Join the community of socially engaged artists/designers, educators, creative activists and community organizers working together to create critical interventions that inspire dialogue and catalyze social change through the arts. This work connects art and social justice, grounded in a pedagogy of hope and possibility. Our intimate and interdisciplinary program balances theory and practice through classroom projects enacted in public spaces and in partnership with local organizations. Through course work we explore the history and political context of socially engaged art and popular education, as well as creative strategies for activism and organizing. The capstone project provides an opportunity to design, implement, and document an artistic intervention in public space or to work with a community organization in an effort to enact social transformation.
