CANuniversity is being developed as a resource for people involved or interested in community arts training. CANu looks at college and university programs and courses and at the university-community partnerships and faculty- and student-led projects that enhance that training and put it into practice.

CANu includes:

* Writings by or about this topic by practitioners, educators and students
* Places To Study: A directory of college and university courses in degree and nondegree programs. Also internships, fellowships, apprenticeships, certificate programs, workshops and institutes, for credit or not. Updated frequently.
* Syllabi from past and continuing courses around the world
* A Discussion group hosted on Yahoo groups
* And more. The project is open-ended and will continue to grow, possibly generating CAN textbook publications and CAN training courses online.

Why CANu?

The field of community arts is growing rapidly, attracting practitioners, thinkers and participants around the world. And when the arts intersect with education, community development, healthcare, environmental concerns, religion, politics ? in fact in any sensitive area of community activity ? skills are required that have never been a part of a traditional arts education.
