||Institute on the Arts and Civic Dialogue Archive
||The Institute on the Arts and Civic Dialogue was founded in 1997 by Anna Deavere Smith
to support the development of those artworks and projects specifically concerned with
social conditions and to foster dialogue between artists, activists, scholars and
audiences that could both enhance the artworks and encourage a broader, more open
exchange of ideas. The main activity of the Institute was the organization of three
summer series where numerous works were created, staged, and discussed with the participation
of volunteer audiences, teachers and professors, cultural critics and other guests.
The collection consists of administrative records, artist applications, and records
and documents of the artworks and theatrical productions.
