A breakdown of our time together in Atlanta

Additional details will be added in the lead-up to the convening

Making the Impossible Possible kicks off the evening of Tuesday, June 27, when we’ll get to know our community of voting champions and get our creative and collaborative juices flowing. On Wednesday, June 28, we’ll dive into how to change voting culture in our communities by harnessing the powers of creativity, the creative process, and utopia.

On Thursday, June 29, we’ll start to realize the bold ideas that arose the day before — prototyping our innovative pro-voter project plans, sharing them with our peers, and developing methods of assessment and iteration. We’ll close that night with a public event featuring leading artistic activists from across Atlanta and sharing key takeaways about how we can — and will — make the impossible possible in our voting work and beyond.
