Resumo

This paper will look at art education as an active intervention in community cultural development by looking briefly at past and present uses of African art as vehicles for maintaining social control, developing historical concepts, and disseminating educational values. We will first discuss some examples of African art objects in traditional societies as tools for social control, historic memory and education and then discuss how similar concepts are manifest in contemporary urban societies by looking a more contemporary example in the form of a phenomenon called set-setal, a movement that took place in Senegal between the years of 1989 and 1992.

Key-words: community, art education, african art.
