The University of California Institute for Research in the Arts supports embedded arts research through critical exchange

Shannon Jackson: Art+Neighborhood

Shannon Jackson (UC Berkeley): Art+California Implementation Grant
Art+Neighborhood examines the ecology of three Bay Area arts districts in order to explore alternatives to the ‘gentrification’ discourse that currently dominates arguments for the role of the arts in neighborhood vitalization. The project will bring together artists, policy-makers, UC scholars and civic organizers to think through the issue and propose next steps.
