Description

The Kenilworth Gallery Community Engaged Arts Initiative hosts collaborative art projects between community groups and PSOA faculty, staff, and students. The initiative utilizes university resources, space, artistic expertise, and strong partnerships to do hands-on community art projects. These projects explore varying themes including democracy and social justice. Our team researches how citizens from Milwaukee and the PSOA community learn from each other. This interaction allows participants to articulate the knowledge and skills they believe to be important to making socially engaging art. We are using case study research methods including field observations, surveys, and interviews to collect quantitative and qualitative data. Detailed analysis of this data will result in an expanded understanding of the ways community engagement projects are understood by participants. Results will be used to create feedback for continuous improvement of our programming as well as dissemination through publication and presentations that may have an influence on a wider audience.
