NEW YORK, March 16, 2015- An anthology of essays and interviews with over
40 contributors was published on Amazon (paperback and Kindle) today, under
the title *Advocating Creatively: Stories of Contemporary Social Change
Pioneers*. This book was a project initiated in March 2013 by students at
Columbia University's School of Social Work. The purpose of this project is
to compile a set of personal essays, contributed by contemporary social
change pioneers who practice creative methods of advocacy to advance social
justice, equality, and peace. Inspired by *Days in the Lives of Social
Workers* by Linda May Grobman, this book is intended to provide inspiration
to individuals interested in creative advocacy and activism, to create a
broader sense of community between current practitioners of creative
advocacy and activism, and foster greater recognition in the wider
professional world of creative advocacy and activism practice. Artists
include diverse disciplines including game writing and LARP design,
nonfiction writing and memoir, drama, photography, visual art, documentary
and film, music performance and writing, and more! This book project is, in
and of itself, a 'meta' example of 'advocating creatively,' since the
book's purpose involves advocating to advance knowledge of 'advocating
creatively' as a concept.
