Call for Proposals--Creative Communities, Alternatives Journal

In this issue, Alternatives explores art and community, examining how
art unites neighbourhoods, how artists can leverage their creative
expertise to influence positive behaviour and change, and how
governments can use creativity as a tool for urban regeneration. 
Alternatives seeks critical reflection and documentation of activist
art and community initiatives that inspire change through multimedia,
multidisciplinary or traditional art forms, including the visual,
literary and performing arts (dance, opera, storytelling, etc.), as
well as community arts practice in Native and non-Native
communities.  Alternatives is currently seeking suggestions for

  • key topics and examples to cover
  • under-reported stories our audience should know about
  • writers who can bring these issues to a broad audience
  • referees to comment on feature articles

Please send your suggestions, along with your contact details by June 14, 2006, to
