Joy of Voting

Parades, street theatre, open-air debates, and festivals – these were once part of America’s culture of voting and it’s time to revive them.

With the support of the Knight FoundationCitizen University is partnering with KMUW of Wichita, Engage MiamiThe Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at The University of Akron, and Committee of Seventy in Philadelphia to bring artists, activists, designers, and citizens together to launch initiatives in these four cities to create creative, communal experiences and rituals around local voting. More than 70 ideas were generated at a convening in late May.
