Description:

Creative arts are understood to be a mediator between positions of social exclusion and of inclusion for marginalized people and places, building self-confidence and strengthening social networks. Although there are undoubted benefits from involvement in creative arts, the author critiques the assumed shift from excluded to included positions.
