Democracy by Design: Art, Tech, and Activism

Mar 12, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

The fight for the freedom to vote is at a critical inflection point in our country. But increasing voter turnout and building a representative democracy will take more than just policy — it will require a fundamental shift in our culture. Artists, Tech Leaders, and Activists around the country are collaborating in new ways to integrate creativity and technology into traditional political organizing strategies. By tearing down barriers to engagement, these cultural organizers are bringing new voices into the conversation and changing politics in the process.
