Getting Out the Vote with the Arts!

In 2022 Arts & Democracy engaged the arts to get out the vote in the 10th year of Participatory Budgeting with City Councilmember Shahana Hanif and the District 39 District Committee. An artmaking workshop on March 23 helped PB Delegates create posterboards of their projects, which were then displayed at a Community Expo April 3 at the Park Slope Armory. A concert at Kensington Plaza April 9 with The Singing Winds featuring Steve Gorn and Mir Niquibul Islam and a salsa class April 10 with Dancewave at the Old Stone House made it fun to vote for community projects.
