A few months ago the USDAC put out a call for groups of Citizen Artists to form local Outposts committed to enacting USDAC values in their community. It’s our pleasure to introduce the newest Outposts to join our national network. These dynamic groups are situated in rural communities, urban centers, and college towns. They champion issues ranging from equal representation in the arts to creating space for artistic action based in love and care, to holding dialogue for community transformation, and much more.
