Teaching Artists work directly in every kind of community (e.g. schools, hospitals, neighborhoods, companies), using their distinctive skills to create change at the individual and community level. Teaching Artistry is the sleeping giant of social change, and Making Change shows us why.

What is a teaching artist? If you don't know-or if you do and would like an advocacy tool to help you spread the word-this book is for you.

Written by the man frequently described as "the father of the teaching artist profession," Making Change shines a light on this powerful global workforce that is largely invisible but astoundingly effective.

Learn how Teaching Artists can activate anyone's innate artistry to achieve a wide variety of positive goals. Enjoy stories about the surprising impact of their partnerships in health, government, education, corporations, environmentalism, social justice, and peacebuilding.

This inspiring book will leave readers - both inside and outside of the arts - with an awareness of new possibilities for shaping a better world.
