Viva! Community Arts and Popular Education in the Americas is a powerful collection of essays that offers critical analysis of the processes, tensions, and opportunities inherent in community arts practice, which challenges dominant educational and artistic paradigms. The book compiles eight case studies that explore and draw connections between social and cultural histories embedded in the colonial context of the Americas, the structures and ideology of capi–talism, and the multifaceted processes of neoliberal globalization. The VIVA! Project ignites an increased sense of injustice as it sparks questions, collective action, and critical hope.
