Social Art Publications is dedicated to developing a portfolio of publications to cultivate, expand and promote knowledge in and about social practice.

Building from the vision of the Social Art Network (SAN), Social Art Publications will develop expanded critical and reflective dialogue around the work of socially engaged practice, be a platform to showcase new work, strengthen peer support for artist book distribution, and be a database of current and historic publications.

Submissions are welcome for mid-scale, professional printed books ranging from Artist Books, Research books, Project Archives, Photography, Creative writing, Psychogeography and more.
