About the Event

We are coming together to learn how arts, culture,  and creative media can reimagine our democracy and revitalize civic  participation.

Monday, September 14, 4:00-5:30pm EST, 3:00-4:30pm CT, 1:00-2:30pm PT

A weblink to Zoom will be emailed before the event.

Join Arts & Democracy and The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture  to learn about inspiring nonpartisan programs in both urban and rural  communities related to the election and census, with a focus on  historically disenfranchised communities. We will hear from artists and  cultural organizers working in Louisiana, Florida, Texas, and Wisconsin  as well as those working nationally.  We look forward to sharing a space  to hear more about what you are engaged in and to support connections  between artists and activists working to build voting power and be  counted. Together, we will ask what work will continue after the  election to ensure that change for the better actually takes place.

The  call will feature presentations from Andrea Assaf, Dr. Rob “Biko”  Baker, Trupania “Trap” Bonner, amalia deloney, and Savannah Romero,  highlighting the following work:

  • #HTownVotes, artist and cultural practitioner projects that will motivate youth and people of color in the Houston area to mobilize to vote
  • #LouisianaCounts2020, a census education initiative providing Louisiana residents with information, trainings and a direct line to unheard voices
  • Disinfo Defense League (DDL),  a real-time, rapid response network to disrupt and dismantle  manipulation and disinformation efforts targeting Black, Afro Latinx,  and Latinx communities. DDL works across geography, generation, and  gender to equip communities with tools, training, and tactics needed to  combat racialized disinformation and win.
  • IllumiNative’s  Natives Vote, a campaign utilizing narrative and culture change  strategies to mobilize Native American voters nationwide, as well as  their partnership with Culture Surge to activate artists and create and  distribute content to mobilize the vote

Sign up here if you want to share your nonpartisan civic engagement related to the elections or census on the call. We’ll reserve you a 2 minute slot.

It is important to us that the virtual event is accessible to all. To make a specific access request, please email info[at]
