Our individual and collective efforts have been made to see the creation or production of art and the mechanisms for its diffusion as active social engagement and instruments of transformation.

Public art as social intervention has been identified by Nina Felshin, Mary Jane Jacob and Suzanne Lacy (among others), as a complex form of artistic practice. There are works, that is objects or actions, that are emblematic of the social problem or make a political statement.
Supportive works that are conceived of and created by the artist that, upon presentation, are designed to be linked to others, ultimately feed back into an actual social system. There are also participatory processes, whereby the concept of the work, and perhaps its actual production, come out of a collaborative process. They aim to make a lasting impact on the lives of the individuals involved, be of productive service to the social network, and, or contribute to remedying the social problem.
