Join us in st. louis for an Historic gathering of artists, activists, policymakers, and others harnessing creativity in building vibrant, equitable communities.

Anchored by RAC’s Community Arts Training (CAT) Institute (the longest-running sustained training program of its kind in the country) and connected nationally through the USDAC’s growing action network, CULTURE/SHIFT 2016 is powerfully positioned to generate and amplify creative strategies for change, equity, and belonging, bringing art to the heart of social justice and community. 

Immediately following the presidential election, we will come together to heal, connect, strategize, organize and create—all in a spirit of serious play and serious impact. Through a rich mix of hands-on workshops, performances, interactive art-making, and public talks and actions —tagged with POLICY ∙ PEOPLE ∙ PLAY  ∙ ART&— we will explore how artists and allies can organize for full cultural citizenship. CULTURE/SHIFT 2016 is a creative encounter designed to maximize imagination, serendipity, boldness, impact, and meaningful connection. All are welcome.
