Session A1: Derivatives of Daily Life – Understanding Community Engagement as Culture, History, and Art

Date/Time:

Location:
TBD

Presenter: Sarida Scott

Session Description: Community engagement is everywhere. From planning to projects to community-engaged learning. It is popular and how it is done is quite varied. Community development is often viewed as activities. How can we connect with “community”? What information do we need? What are we trying to achieve? As a result, it often feels performative and extractive. This session will challenge common beliefs regarding community engagement. As opposed to thinking of engagement as isolated activities, we will explore it as everyday life. Community engagement is an understanding of culture, history, and the intersection and relationship between art and life.
