Overview

Artful Stories tells the story of four arts practitioners from Trinidad and Tobago —a lighting designer, a dancer, a jazz musician and a choreographer—who have made a name for themselves internationally. The work also centers on their role as educators in their fields. Their unique and individual journeys exemplify the classic role artists have (always) played as teachers. Artful Stories is a timely and profound work that captures the teacher-student dynamic. It fills a void in terms of recognizing the contributions of Caribbean artists to U.S. and European artistic scholarship. This book will be a valuable asset for teachers and professors as well as an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate classrooms.
