The Future is Present: A Casting the Vote Project

 

Created in collaboration with Bard Students and youth artist/activists, led by the creative team of
Charlotte Brathwaite, Justin Hicks, Janani Balasubramanian, Sunder Ganglani, with producer Alyssa Simmons and documentarian June Cross.

The Future is Present is a high-impact, liberatory media project that engages a core group of Black and Indigenous youth activists and art makers working in tandem with Bard students and adult movement leaders, artists, and researchers. Inside a 7-week art and political action laboratory, the youth leaders will craft a set of core demands and messages for our collective future, which will then be amplified through a series of high-distribution public actions and artistic interventions.

A Co-production of Fisher Center at Bard and Casting the Vote. Co-commissioned by Fisher Center at Bard and New York Live Arts
