💘 This week, the Center recommends “Art Works: How Organizers and Artists are Creating a Better World Together” (2023) by Ken Grossinger.

According to our own Steve Duncombe, “focusing on stories of artists and organizers collaborating over a wide range of movements, in Art Works Ken Grossinger establishes the key principle for success when using art for social change: the effect of the arts and the effect of activism work better when working together.”
