Description

We the people do hereby create, the United States Department of Arts and Culture. Citizen Artists and Cultural Agents wanted! The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture is a new citizen-powered initiative to catalyze art and culture in the public interest and cultivate the public interest in art and culture. Culture precedes politics. Active creative participation is a gateway to ongoing civic engagement. Arts and culture are essential to building empathy and social imagination. The capacity to collaborate is a key element of any resilient community. Cultural change can swell up from the grassroots level. Arts and culture are our most powerful and under-tapped resources for social change.

Collaborating Artists: Adam Horowitz, Cordelia Istel www.usdac.us
