The conversation was led by Colleen Houston, ArtWorks CEO and artistic director, with artists and activists who are focusing their creative energies to get out the vote for the 2020 election. These artists, through billboards, town halls, youth-focused field guides, yard signs, posters and more, are doing what they can to change the political landscape by inspiring others to get involved. The panelists include Michelle D’ Cruz from Reverb Art + Design, Tamia Saunders from ArtWorks Hear Me Out Apprentice Team, Emily Hanako Momohara from For Freedoms, Chris Glass from Public Service Artists and Destinee Thomas from More Free 2020.
