Socially Engaged Practice
"Socially engaged practice, also referred to as social practice or socially engaged art, can include any artform which involves people and communities in debate, collaboration or social interaction. This can often be organised as the result of an outreach or education program, but many independent artists also use it within their work. ...
The participatory element of socially engaged practice, is key, with the artworks created often holding equal or less importance to the collaborative act of creating them. As Tom Finkelpearl outlines in his book, What We Made: Conversations on Art and Social Cooperation, social practice is 'art that's socially engaged, where the social interaction is at some level the art.'"
