We, the people, do hereby create

The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture

Inciting creativity in the service of empathy, equity, and social imagination.

A People-Powered Department

The U.S. Department of Arts and Culture is not a federally recognized agency, but an act of collective imagination fueled by all who believe that art and culture are among our most powerful and under-tapped resources for creating a more just, equitable, and vibrant world.

Call to Action: #Daretoimagine

From October 10-18, 2015, Emissaries from the Future will create Imagination Stations nationwide, popping up in parks, classrooms, galleries, conferences, farmer's markets and beyond to invite participants to #DareToImagine the world they wish to inhabit. The crowdsourced vision of the future that emerges will inspire new art, policy, and community action. Learn more and sign up to take part!
