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. Check out the #DareToImagine  action website!
