The Democracy Cycle believes democracy is a goal, a process, an experiment, and an ideal. A passionate conversation. Democracy is not only about how we choose our leaders—it’s also about what kind of society we create. A democratic society must be just and equal for all.
How can art inspire civic action for the well-being of all, especially vulnerable populations and future generations, so that the most-resourced individuals, special interest groups, and corporations do not dominate political representation? How can art help to promote cultural acceptance of compromise, changing one’s mind, and seeing problems from different perspectives? How can the performing arts bring us together instead of dividing us? The Democracy Cycle is eager to help us all find answers to these pressing questions.
