Introduction
Judith Marcuse, a choreographer, producer, teacher, and social entrepreneur, is increasing the effectiveness with which disparate communities use the arts as tools for promoting social change. Through her International Centre of Art for Social Change (ICASC), Judith connects arts-based social change organizations and leading practitioners in the field within Canada and abroad, creating a global hub for collaboration, research, teaching and knowledge-exchange. Judith works with artists, teachers, youth, social activists and many others to better understand how the arts can be used by communities to address issues of concern to them—and to move from these arts-based forms of dialogue to concrete, change-making action.
