Art, Community and Environment investigates wide-ranging issues raised by the interaction between art practice, community participation, and the environment, both natural and urban.

This volume brings together a distinguished group of contributors from the United Kingdom, Australia, and Finland to examine topics such as urban art, community participation, local empowerment and the problems of ownership. Featuring rich colour illustrations and informative case studies from around the world, Art, Community and Environment addresses the growing interest in this fascinating dimension of art and education, forming a vital addition to Intellect’s Readings in Art and Design Education series.

'A valuable dissection of the issues concerning the interface of "public" and "community" art. It is an illuminating analysis of approaches and attitudes in such geographically distant locations, with such a wide range of educational experiences and artistic results. ' – Andy Scott, Sculptor

'No other book so richly brings together detailed descriptions and captivating images of community-based projects that exemplify the relationship between making environmental art, creating aesthetic experiences and embodying the essence of place. ' – Rita L. Irwin, The University of British Columbia

'Timo Jokela and Glen Coutts have put together a welcome collection of essays outlining a rich and manifold picture of the educational and aesthetic aspects that come into play when artists and art educators take our built and living environment as their primary arena. ' – Pirkko Pohjakallio-Koskinen, University of Art & Design, Finland

'Its main focus is the connection between artists and the environment,[...] this is reflected in not only in the text, but the pictures as well, some of which are beautiful and eye-catching [...] Anyone looking to use the book for reference can easily dip in and out of it. ' – Jodie Beecroft,

'The breadth of topics here is impressive: Mark Dawes outlines modes of empowerment and questions of sustainability, whilst Maria Huhmarniemi explores the internet as a tool for community art projects. ' – Steve Hanson, Cultural Studies Lecturer at Hereford College of Arts
