As the lead for developing Animating Democracy’s new website, I can tell you that it’s filled to the brim with incredible resources from our Arts and Social Change Mapping Initiative and Arts & Civic Engagement Impact Initiative as well as earlier publications, tools, and resources from the program’s first decade of contributions to the field.

In fact, I’d wager that if you’ve gone to the site, one of the problems is that there’s too much there! Have 10 minutes?

  • Delve deeper with our trend papers which focus in on particular segments of the arts and social justice fields that are emerging, have been sustained over time, and/or have had observable impact.

Take 10 minutes to check out our new site and let us know what we can do to help improve your experience.
