New Publications in Spain and Portugal

Two of last year’s ICAF participants have edited new books on community art in their home countries.  Eva García of Transformas in Barcelona has edited a special edition of Abierto al Público [‘Open to the Public’] entitled Artes Escénicas y Comunidad. In it, she introduces community art in all its variety to a Spanish readership associated with ‘La Red’, the network of public theatres, auditoriums, circuits and festivals.

Hugo Cruz, artistic director of Pele in Porto, has edited a book entitled Arte e Comunidade: Trajetórias e Olhares Transversais. It will be published by the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon next month. Both books – to which ICAF has also contributed – are clear signs that community art is now well and truly on the agenda in southern Europe.
