社區,英文為community,多指具有某種互動關係和共同文化維繫力的人類群體及其活動領域。這個詞同時也含有公社、團體、社會、公眾,以及共同體、共同性等多種含義。從詞根來看,其中com指「共同」,mun指「公共的」 ,ity指「具備某種性質,狀況」。很明顯,這種狀態指的是一種群體的公共狀態。也就是說,當我們談及社區的時候,我們必然是在公共性的語境中展開的討論。







Community refers to people and their activities with a certain interactive relationship and common culture. The term also contains various meanings such as commune, group, society, public, community, and commonality. In the word “Community,” “com” refers to “common,” “mun” refers to “public,” and “ity” refers to “have a certain state.” This state refers to a group of people in public. In other words, when we talk about the community, we must start the discussion in the context of publicity.

When we carry out research and actions to build a “Social Governance Community,” we need to mobilize more participants, coordinate the cooperation between government officials and non-governmental parties more diversely, and more creatively and in-depth. Cross-boundaries collaboration between different disciplines and exploring creative community work methods is the inevitable action orientation.

The diversity, inclusiveness, sensibility, and growth of art in response to society make it an excellent way for humankind to express themselves and establish communication. Art is an international language without cultural and geographical divisions, and it is an important method that can be studied and used in community work.

Through art projects, the entire city’s livelihood and order will become a field to be determined. With the joint work of artists and social workers, urban residents’ participation will be linked to exploring more abundant public spaces, so that new spaces can be created anytime, anywhere.

Public art can respond to specific work needs at the community operation aspect through four aspects: community space creation, community relationship creation, community story creation, and community aesthetic creation. Public art activates public space, and public space creates public relations. In this context, social relations in the city can be reshaped.

A major feature of community work is the continuous dynamic adjustments based on society. The community’s art festival planning also needs to be open, coordinated, and dynamically adjusted in the face of specific community characteristics. A scientific professional organizational structure and working methods are the basic guarantees for the community public art festival’s development. In actual operation, once the planning and implementation of the art festival officially start, its work will behave like a sophisticated instrument, requiring all workers to clarify their job roles, complete their work on time and efficiently, while ensuring accuracy and professionalism, any omission in any part of the work will cause the whole work to be affected immediately. Therefore, the members of the working group must have the comprehensive ability of “flexibly fill up positions” in addition to “fulfilling their responsibilities.”
