The Creative Instigator's Handbook

A DIY Guide to Making Social Change Through Art

Leanne Prain


Are you a creative (aspiring or otherwise) who is curious about how you can apply your skills to activist, socially engaged art projects? Whether you paint, sew, sing, build, weld, or rhyme, The Creative Instigator’s Handbook explores how to take that big project you’ve been dreaming about and actually make it a happen.

In response to the challenging times that we live in, this book will inspire readers to use their creativity to spur change in the world around them. Guiding readers through the various aspects of a project from an idea to final documentation, the book examines the relationship between creative leadership, community art projects, and social justice, and includes the perspectives of 23 creative instigators who have stretched the boundaries of what “art” should or shouldn’t do.

Bold and imaginative, The Creative Instigator’s Handbook will appeal to creatives willing to expand their comfort zone by jumping into the fray and doing some outrageous, inspired rabble-rousing of their very own.
