Community Arts Project Presentation by Pratt Students

The community arts projects feature the collaboration between Pratt students and residents in Pratt’s surrounding community, Bedford Stuyvesant, who as part of the IACSC sponsored course ‘Art, Design, and Community,'. This pilot course is part of IACSC” effort to encourage faculty in liberal arts, art and design, planning, architecture, and art education to design and co-teach interdisciplinary courses that help students explore the relationship of art and design to social change. The IACSC-sponsored course asks faculty and students to explore historical and contemporary aspects of urban development and community engagement in more than one discipline, and apply this theoretical knowledge through community-based art projects in which students are asked to work in teams and collaborate with community organizations. Because the course is co-taught, faculty members are also asked to collaborate with each other.
