Rethinking community music as artistic citizenship

Marissa Silverman, David Elliott

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter raises questions about the intersections between community music and citizenship and poses the fundamental question: ‘Artistic citizenship for what?’ Our chapter proceeds as follows. First, in addition to providing a concept of community music as/for artistic citizenship, we seek to relate central themes of community music to ‘living sites’ of artistic citizenship. Second, because our approach is dominantly philosophical, we probe the concepts of artistry and citizenship separately and in combination. In doing so, we hope to provide community musicians/facilitators with a theoretical framework for thinking about and acting in relation to the ethical natures, potentials, and pragmatic realities of artistic citizenship for human flourishing through music and the other arts.
