ART + The Verb To Be In many tribal cultures, there is no word for ART. The creative act is in the shape of a context, the texture of relationships, the sounds of inquiry. It is how people are, not just what they do . . . creativity and connection, ceremony and ritual, the magic of the marketplace. ART is how we ARE. Arts-based community development works with the action verbs like: think, fund, make, show, see, sell. Get this far, and then consider the challenges of: reflect, document, and, finally, evaluate. That's the process.
