Community, Art, Power is a collection of essays especially commissioned by the International Community Arts Festival in Rotterdam. This event has been taking place every three years since 2001, when Rotterdam was cultural capital of Europe. It is produced by the Rotterdams Wijktheater, one of the most prominent community-based theatre companies in The Netherlands. Over the years, the festival has grown to become one of the most inspiring encounters of community arts professionals and participants from all over the world. This book contains original contributions from François Matarasso, Jan Cohen-Cruz, Michael Romanyshyn, Edith Scher and many others. It addresses music, theatre, storytelling and visual arts in countries such as Argentina, Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, England, Peru, Germany, the Czech Republic, Australia, and Canada. Community, Art, Power includes a unique DVD with mini-documentaries and a bonus track about an artist-in-residency of Dance United in The Hague.
