This book examines the role of community engagement within artists' communities, focusing on the question of how artists' communities, whose core mission is to shelter artists from external demands, can also engage effectively with their local communities. The study also includes a survey of artists, a series of case studies on community outreach programs at artists communities, and an overview of lessons learned.
