This ‘Art and Activism in Public Space’ special issue of The Journal of Public Space presents a spectrum of practices and theoretical reflections on creative practices in public space, across a diverse range of public environments including in the Sudan, China, Australia, UK, Mexico, Cuba, Italy and Colombia. Through articles and portfolios, the reader is drawn into both familiar and unfamiliar scenarios.
Articles and portfolios in Art and Activism in Public Space issues are not asked to respond to a specific theme. The intention of this publication is to reflect on what emerges at the intersection of art-based research, creative practice, theoretical frameworks around contemporary public practice, and the changing nature of public space.
