Springboard for the Arts Launches New Publication, A Handbook for Artists Working in Community

Resource draws on artists from around the country & Springboard's place-based work


August 6, 2020

St. Paul, MN – Springboard for the Arts is delighted to announce the launch of A Handbook for Artists Working in Community, a resource that draws on Springboard for the Arts’ decade-long experience in artist-led creative placemaking and community work. This resource is a 116 page, full color illustrated guide and is available for free download here:

“This handbook is a practical manual for individual artists who would like to begin or deepen this kind of artistic practice – work in and work with community,” says Springboard Associate Director, Programs and lead author Jun-Li Wang. “We’re thrilled to be able to share insights, tools, and wisdom gathered from our work and from creative practitioners immersed in community in different ways.”

The Handbook is organized into five sections: Artist Groundwork, Community Groundwork, Project Formation, Project Implementation and Group Participation Tools. These sections prepare artists and their practice for community work, consider the relationships needed to succeed in community, and go through project steps and design. The first four sections include worksheets and exercises to use, followed by a fifth section of practitioners’ favorite exercises to help groups be and work together.
