Arts for Change presents strategies and theory for teaching socially engaged art with an historical and contemporary overview of the field. The book features interviews with over thirty maverick artists/faculty from colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain, whose pedagogy is drawn from and informs activist arts practice.

The issues these teaching artists address are provocative and diverse. Some came to this work through personal healing from injustice and trauma or by witnessing oppressions that became intolerable. Many have taught for decades, deeply influenced by social movements of the 1960s and 1970s, yet because the work is controversial, tenured positions are rare.

From the Back Cover:

"Beverly Naidus' warm and serious pedagogic memoir should ring bells with educators everywhere. I have long admired her commitment to an alternative path in teaching art and social justice without contradictions. Her personal and political odyssey, and the thumbnail portraits of her artist colleagues/mentors, offer an illuminating glimpse beyond the academic curtain."
Lucy R. Lippard, author, The Lure of the Local: Senses of Place in a Multicentered Society

"Arts for Change is essential reading for artists, art teachers, educational administrators, and students of art. It brings to life a pedagogical practice, employed for years by a significant number of socially-engaged activist artists, known but to few outside this community."
Nina Felshin, author, But Is It Art? The Spirit of Art as Activism

"Beverly Naidus has threaded her life story as an artist and teacher working for social change with the texts that are important to her, the parents and teachers who inspired her, the syllabi she has designed, and the stories of people engaged in this field today.... This text is an important addition to the history of our field--a lens through which all art educators in public schools and universities can view and transform their practice."
Dr. Amy Brook Snider, Chair, Art and Design Education, Pratt Institute

"Naidus argues passionately for a different kind of art, one that builds social muscle and can make a difference in the world. I predict this book will inspire exciting and innovative trends in both art and education and critical theory, tilting them more in the direction of interdisciplinary and socially engaged practices. And I agree with Naidus' core proposition that the times demand nothing less."
Suzi Gablik, art critic, artist, teacher and author, The Re-Enchantment of Art and Conversations Before the End of Time

"In a world full of horror--war, torture, poverty, hunger, racism, sexism, homophobia, environmental degradation, and so much more--Beverly Naidus offers us hope and inspiration. Arts for Change: Teaching Outside the Frame underscores our understanding of activist art as an indispensable component of progressive social change. It also impels us to join forces with the artists who serve as the humanity's conscience."
Paul Von Blum, Senior Lecturer, African American Studies, Communication Studies, and Art History, UCLA

Beverly Naidus has been using art to dream, question, stir things up and find community for a few decades. She's been teaching others to do the same for almost as long and is currently on the faculty of the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences Program at the University of Washington, Tacoma.|"Beverly Naidus' warm and serious pedagogic memoir should ring bells with educators everywhere.
