About

This website is a project of Concordia University’s David O’Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise.

This website will document the ability of art to make measurable changes – in a community, in a space, in people’s lives. Projects are simply documented and categorized to facilitate research in this area; we aren’t critiquing or otherwise commenting on the nature or quality of the works presented.

We are particularly interested in art as intervention; pieces that physically change a place, pieces that implicate community members in its creation, pieces that take information and transform it into something digestible, comprehensible, and, frequently, beautiful.

More information to come!

      Hi there Linda, I’ve added your suggestion to the resources page. I actually have your book sitting on my desk!
