    Co-Creation in Theory and Practice

    This innovative book provides a critical analysis of diverse experiences of Co-creation in neighbourhood settings across the Global North and Global South.

    A unique collection of international researchers, artists and activists explore how creative, arts-based methods of community engagement can help tackle marginalisation and stigmatisation, whilst empowering communities to effect positive change towards more socially just cities.

    Focusing on community collaboration, arts practice, and knowledge sharing, this book proposes various methods of Co-Creation for community engagement and assesses the effectiveness of different practices in highlighting, challenging, and reversing issues that most affect urban cohesion in contemporary cities.

    "Provides a provocative examination of co-creation through the lens of agency, collaboration and alternative perspectives.” Aksel Ersoy, Delft University of Technology

    Christina Horvath is Reader in French Literature and Politics at the University of Bath.

    Juliet Carpenter is Senior Research Fellow at Oxford Brookes University.
