New Village Press

New Village Press books serve the interdependent fields of social justice, participatory planning, community building, ecology, and community-based arts. The Press crosses boundaries between professional, academic, and informal education with books that engage scholars, practitioners, and community activists alike.

Through illustrated stories, case studies, essays, interviews, educational tools, and guides, New Village publications celebrate the ingenuity of those people rebuilding society. We cover the creativity of community building, focusing on what works and what is culturally exciting.

New Village Press is a national publishing project of Architects Designers Planners for Social Responsibility (ADPSR). See how you can support our public-benefit Press.
