OPTIONS FOR COMMUNITY ARTS TRAINING
In recent years, an increasing number of artists and arts organizations have been joining in partnerships with other community sectors to advance the healthy development of their communities. The result is a proliferation of cross-sector collaborations and opportunities. In the fall of 2015, Intermedia Arts joined with Animating Democracy to create a study designed to learn more about where community arts training is currently taking place and where there may be future interest.



PRINCIPLES AND PRAXIS
StoryShift is a program of Working Films that is committed to changing the way stories are told to ensure accountable and authentic representation of the people and places featured. StoryShift aims to dismantle extractive filmmaking, which is too often the standard in the documentary sector. By interviewing filmmakers and other stakeholders about their practices, this series works toward envisioning what truly accountable and authentic processes look like and how they can be embraced.



PUBLIC ARTS RESOURCES CENTER (AMERICANS FOR THE ARTS)
Are you interested in calls for artists in your area? Or are you an administer looking for professional development opportunities? Maybe you are a field partner just interested in the basics? This tool will show you exactly what you are looking for. The Public Art Resource Center (PARC) is your online portal to find tools, resources, and opportunities tailored to your role and needs in the public art field.



SHELTERFORCE: ARTISTS AS ORGANIZERS
Like any tool, creative placemaking can be used to build something shaky (development done without regard to the community around it, which can lead to displacement and contribute to inequity) or to build something solid (through a process that represents the community in which it is based, includes broad input, and contributes to equitable development.) Most of us are interested in the solid option. But how do we ensure that what we’re building is solid?



TAMARACK FOUNDATION RESOURCE LIBRARY
Resources for artists including how to target your market, selling, branding, scholarships, and residensies. It also includes guides to grants & opportunities, awards, fellowships and open calls.



WHAT WE MADE
In What We Made, Tom Finkelpearl examines the activist, participatory, coauthored aesthetic experiences being created in contemporary art. In a series of fifteen conversations, artists comment on their experiences working cooperatively, joined at times by colleagues from related fields, including social policy, architecture, art history, urban planning, and new media.
