Arts Move Policy

2019-2020 AMP SEASON

  • Come To Your Census (Oct. 22) - COME TO YOUR CENSUS brought creatives together for a workshop, panel discussion, and performances to explore the 2020 census, its impact on creatives, and how attendees can get involved to ensure everyone counts in 2020.
  • Does Voting Matter? How the arts promote civic engagement in 2020 (March 3) - In partnership with State Matters and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, this conversation explored why voting matters in 2020, how the creative sector intersects with the civic space, and what our responsibility is to the democracy we live in.
