Participatory Arts in International Development

We are delighted that authors from the recently published book “Participatory Arts in International Development”, co-edited by Paul Cooke (Principal Investigator of Changing the Story) and Inés Soria-Donlan (Project Manager of Changing the Story), have chosen to share the pre-proofed versions of their book chapters with us here on Changing the Story.

These are Accepted Manuscript versions of book chapters published by Routledge/CRC Press in Participatory Arts in International Development on 29 August 2019. The final version of each chapter and the complete book is available online: https://www.crcpress.com/Participatory-Arts-in-International-Development/Cooke-Soria-Donlan/p/book/9780367024970

We would like to thank all of the authors, project participants and partners involved in each piece of research – all of whom are also connected to Changing the Story in different ways – for their ongoing work and important contribution to the knowledge base developing in this area.
