CCD and Young People aimed to produce an edition of ARTWORK that presents a snapshot of theory and practice in Australia in 2004, from a community cultural development perspective. The editions presents current thinking and findings on the importance of participation in artistic practice for young people, particularly in the transition between childhood and adulthood. It will also provide readers with understandings of youth collaborative protocols when working with young people in collaborative art making processes. Examples will show how the voices of young people are being heard through the arts and how this contributes to expressions of youth culture.
