Alliance of Artists Communities




Alternate ROOTS

Alternate ROOTS provides the connective tissue for a distinct segment of the arts and culture field – artists who have a commitment to making work in, with, by, for and about their communities, and those whose cultural work strives for social justice.

A Blade of Grass

A Blade of Grass provides resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. ABOG evaluates the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue.

Broken City Lab
An artist-led interdisciplinary creative research collective and non-profit organization working to explore and unfold curiosities around locality, infrastructures, and creative practice leading towards civic change.

Center for Performance and Civic Practice

A national resource supporting artists and communities working together to build civic health, equity, and capacity.

Community Development Investment Review: Building Resiliency
A publication of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco's Community Development Program. 

Believing that addressing the complex, long-standing challenges that limit opportunity requires collaboration across sectors and disciplines, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco develops and connect best practices and emerging ideas with organizations best positioned to make meaningful change in our communities.

Creative Time

Creative Time’s work is guided by three core values: art matters, artists’ voices are important in shaping society, and public spaces are places for creative and free expression. 

Open Engagement

An international conference and platform to support socially engaged art.

Socially Engaged Arts Journal (SEAJ)

An online quarterly publication that features the work of socially engaged artists –  from social practice, to community art, to social design.

This project is funded in part by support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
