Arts & Democracy
Arts & Democracy helps build a movement of work that cross-fertilizes arts and culture, participatory democracy, and social justice. We do this through cultural organizing, capacity building, artist residencies, and by shaping policy and creating spaces for reflection and connection. Our focus is on historically disenfranchised communities. We put arts and culture on agendas where it hasn’t been before, connect artists, activists, and policymakers who wouldn’t otherwise know each other, and create the connective tissue and generative environment needed for transformative collaborations to succeed.
