Assessing the Impact of Artistic Activism

Stephen Duncombe

This study explores the question of assessment and impact of artistic activism through a review of critical literature on the social impact of the arts as well as a survey of recent reports done by organizations interested in arts, media and assessment. But central to this study is data provided by in-depth interviews done by the research team with nearly 60 practitioners of artistic activism, including 10 “field leaders” who run institutions, training schools, and prominent groups devoted to artistic activism.
