Joyful. Vibrant. Safe. Sexy. Accessible. Inspiring. Irresistible.
Not the words people often associate with voting, especially not in 2023: when there are staggering challenges to voters and those who support them all across the country. When it’s so hard for so many to cast their ballot, make their voices heard, and protect their fundamental freedoms — especially in Georgia
But we know civic engagement and social justice work at large can be all those things — and must be all those things, to mobilize at the mass scale we need to make a more just state, country, and world.
At the Center for Artistic Activism, we help people use the powers of art to overcome incredible odds and build campaigns that win — and win big.
On Saturday, June 24, from 10am-12pm, join us and our partners at CoolCoolCool Productions and Out of Hand Theater for a hands-on workshop to learn how to combine the powers of art and activism to bring more creativity, innovation, imagination, and impact to the issues you care about most.
Fill out the brief form below to join us.
In Unstoppable Voters: Atlanta you will
- learn the fundamentals of artistic activism and how to apply them to your social justice work
- collaborate with other artists and activists to develop creative campaigns in support of Georgians
- receive feedback and guidance from the Center for Artistic Activism, Out of Hand, CoolCoolCool Productions, and many more peers
- leave with wildly creative and highly strategic ways to build the Atlanta we all need.
No previous experience required
You don’t need to be an “Artist.” You don’t need to be an “Activist.” You can be a seasoned advocate, new to this space, a professional creative, or someone who goes into a panic when they have to pick up a marker. No experience is required, beyond an openness to creativity and experimentation.
Unstoppable Voters: Atlanta will be held at the Emory University Center for Ethics, located at 1531 Dickey Drive, in Room 102 on Saturday, June 24, from 10am-12pm.
For free parking, head to the very nearby Peavine South Parking Lot, located at 27 Eagle Row. It’s a 3-minute walk from the lot to the workshop space.
The program is entirely free to participants. Light snacks will be provided.
