Elect an Artist with Lisa Austin

Artist and Activist  LISA AUSTIN

joins us at AREA 405 Friday, September 2nd in conjunction with September's back to school ALLOVERSTREET to have a fundraiser and talk about how artists are vital to today's democracy.

Artists can help transform the opaque structures that thwart each community's potential.The first ELECT AN ARTIST was held in Richmond, VA this June to get artists - from poets to painters - to start thinking about running for local elected office and local board. Instead of oppositional thinking, our democracy needs Collaborative- Creative problem-solvers. 

Come enjoy a beverage and get creatively involved in running your community.

Donations are welcomed to help support the upcoming ELECT AN ARTIST website as well as 2017 campaign of social sculptor (Lisa Austin) who plans to run for Mayor of Erie, PA.

Suggested Donations: 
Event $5-$25.
