We are thrilled to announce that Simon Fraser University will be offering an M.Ed in Arts for Social Change in Fall 2016, co-taught by ASC! Project researchers Judith Marcuse and Lynn Fels!

The M.Ed. in Arts for Social Change (ASC), the first to be offered in Canada, is designed for artists, educators, change-makers and others who wish to integrate arts-based practices and insights into their work for social change.

In this interdisciplinary program, students will develop and refine skills in arts-infused group facilitation techniques and the integration of ASC processes into diverse agendas for change. Students will have the opportunity to intern with local organizations engaged in arts-based community projects.

Against a backdrop of practical and ethical concerns, and in contexts both local and global, we will explore the arts as catalysts for change in a wide range of settings, among them:

health and well-being
intergenerational engagement
social and environmental justice
community development
policy change
conflict resolution
social innovation and social enterprise
