Artist As Citizen
Artist As Citizen brings ideas and information to the public in fresh ways, in order to promote the critical thinking necessary to a democracy.
We select students and recent graduates of the best creative programs around the country, and connect them with funding, expert advice, and logistical support for the production of art, media and design projects that examine real world topics.
We've teamed up with organizations including the New York Times, Grameen America, and 350.org, and have worked with thinkers including Jeffrey Sachs and Craig Newmark. Our advisors include Ji Lee, creative director at Facebook, Gavin Schmidt, climate scientist at NASA, and Reese Schonfeld, co-founder of CNN.
