Publisher's Synopsis

How do young people develop through youth arts programs and how can these programs reflect and extend young people's personal interests? How can youth arts support participatory democracy and social change? Frances Howard puts forward a powerful case for the value of youth arts programs, whilst acknowledging and interrogating the complexities involved, including unequal access to provision and the class-based harm that can be inadvertently practiced within them. Drawing on the author's own practice experience, alongside a range of international case studies showing best practice, this grounded and accessible text will be welcome reading to academics, students and practitioners across Education, Youth and Community courses.
