The Inspiration Paradigm of Art and Social Change

For already over 15 years, Inspiration has been exploring, creating and developing a wide range of methodologies that blend the disciplines of art with social change practices, thus forming an interdisciplinary space for human development.

Inspiration’s ecosystem incorporates a multifactor model, synthesizing four distinct strategies of social change: Awareness (art), Action (art), Human Capacity Building (art), and Community (art) in over twenty applied practices such as Art for Peace, Art for Community Engagement, Art for Community Development, Art for Cross-Cultural Dialogue and Art for Social Innovation, Art Therapy, and Art for Human Dignity. Many of the practices are relevant to more than one social change strategy.
