Across Canada and around the world, artists are working with diverse communities to create positive social change through processes of participatory art making. Since 2013, the ASC! Project, a five-year, national research project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), has been working to better understand how these practices are evolving in Canada, particularly in the areas of evaluation, teaching and learning, and partnerships. This interim update is designed for public, non-academic audiences and is intended to provide a snapshot of some of our findings gleaned from the first two and a half years of our research.
