Art for a Democratic Society is an organization dedicated to promoting a culturally and politically dynamic, vibrant, and relevant art scene at the grassroots level.  We believe that open and democratic debate, discussion, and critique are preconditions for progressive and inclusive movements in politics, art, and culture.  We seek to engage artists and art audiences in public discussions concerning the state of, and relationship between, art, politics, and culture in contemporary society.  We are open to all individuals and organizations or collectives who wish to add their voices and perspectives to this project.
