This book presents a series of essays and reports on the topic of Applied Visual Arts. Broadly
speaking, this territory of contemporary arts focuses on community-based and socially
engaged art. Authors include academics, artists, curators and postgraduate students who
share a commitment to advancing the cause of context sensitive art, research and education.
The anthology will be of interest to a wide audience including, for example, artists,
social scientists, community activists and educators. Organised in five sections (see below)
the book offers readers a wide range of perspectives into Applied Visual Arts, cool indeed.
