Résumé

These are the stories of four arts practitioners from Trinidad and Tobago – a lighting designer, a dancer, a jazz musician and a choreographer – who have made names for themselves internationally. The book 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 by 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.
