From the CAN archive
Recently, I asked Linda Frye Burnham and Steve Durland (High Performance Magazine, Art in the Public Interest and the Community Arts Network) if I could browse through the CAN archive to surface information people needed or that was relevant to my research. I will post information here so SPAN viewers can search thru the CAN archive – On September 6, 2010, the CAN website was archived at Indiana University: http://wayback.archive-it.org/2077/20100906194747/http://www.communityarts.net/

Community Arts 101: Community Arts 101 is the CAN textbook, a primer on the field. These essays should provide you with some basic knowledge about community art. We introduce you to the work from three different angles – by arts discipline (like theater and visual art), by population (like elders or people living outside the U.S.), by social context (like activism or community development).
