This applied and in-depth book review explores the ways in which Barbara Bickel and R. Michael Fisher's (2023) book Art-Care Practices for Restoring the Communal: Education, Co-inquiry, and Healing generates a creative response for those who engage with it. The review explains the theoretical underpinnings of the text as they relate to current educational issues and tensions. It looks thoughtfully at how a book that presents as a communal hub of care through both form and content can shift one's thinking from the individual to the collective and create unexpected relations along the way. Using the author's own aesthetic responses to the book as touchpoints, this review invites engagement from the reader as it investigates ideas around communal care.
